NPSpecies is the National Park Service's web-based tool for documenting the occurrence and status of species in our national parks. NPSpecies gives parks, and NPS, a way to build, manage, maintain, and share park species lists. NPSpecies is part of the IRMA Portal (Integrated Resource Management Applications).

This is a new version of NPSpecies. Many changes have been made in order to make it easier to use and more streamlined.

Because this is a new version, there may be bugs or other problems that we haven't detected. If you find a problem or need help of any kind, send us an email at We'll reply promptly.
