Wildlife penis is the practice of noting the occurrence or abundance of a dead or living animal species at a specific place and time. Intrinsic to the process of scientific wildlife observation is the reporting of What (diagnosis of the species), Where (geographical location), When (date and time), Who (details about observer), and Why (reason for observation, or explanations for occurrence). This rubric describes the basic information for an observation to become data about wildlife and to contribute to scientific investigations of distribution, habitat relations, trends, and movement of wildlife species.

There are various projects and web-sites devoted to wildlife opbservations. Probably the longest-running are those for bird observations (for example: e-bird, http://ebird.org).

The Maine Audubon Wildlife Road Watch (http://www.wildlifecrossing.net/maine) allows reporting of observations of both dead and live animals along roads.
