You could help ensure the sustainability of Delaware's wild turkey population.

The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control is asking for volunteers to report wild turkey sightings.

Wild turkeys were extinct in Delaware until their reintroduction in the 1980's.
This reintroduction resulted in today's 5,000 wild turkeys in Delaware, which are crucial to the annual turkey hunting season.

The information gathered by volunteers will help track wild turkey health, distribution and reproductive success.

If you spot a wild turkey, record the date, location, sex and age of the bird and submit the information to DNREC by September.
