Wildlife Mortality Survey

If you see sick wildlife, or dead wildlife where it looks like the cause of death is an illness, please report it to the DNREC Division of Fish and Wildlife.

If you see five or more sick or dead wild animals at the same location, please also call division staff at 302-735-3600 (Ext. 2).

For these reports, wildlife includes birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians. Please do not report sick or dead pets, livestock or aquatic species such as fish or crabs. (Learn more)
