where you can share your stories and observations of critters in their
natural habitat. Send us your wildlife sightings that are either unusual
or highlight, in an interesting way, the animal's behavior.
What animal(s) did you see?
Location: Where did you see it? Include local spot as well as
where that is: e.g. Tenaya Lake, Yosemite National Park.
Habitat: What were the surroundings: Meadow? Forest? Stream?

(UTM) grid coordinates of your sighting. This is now the generally accepted

it provides an exact location, but in meters. Check our example.
