Mission Statement

The mission of the San Diego Tracking Team is to foster an attitude of stewardship by promoting awareness and knowledge of our natural world. We promote the preservation of wildlife habitat in San Diego County through citizen-based wildlife monitoring coupled with environmental education programs. The SDTT conducts wildlife track and sign surveys to evaluate the health of key species, the connectivity of open space areas, and the efficacy of the area's Habitat Conservation Plans. We train volunteers to support the monitoring activity of 18 mammal species via track and sign surveys throughout San Diego County. Scientific advisors from public agencies and academic institutions oversee our protocol, and our data is used in planning transportation projects and development. We also encourage public engagement in conservation issues through our walks, classes, and presentations.


The volunteer-based San Diego Tracking Team (SDTT) is a countywide alliance of wildlife tracking teams which began in 1993 with the Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve Tracking Team. The members combined their desire to preserve open space with their tracking skills by initiating wildlife surveys and using the data they collected to facilitate planning and preservation in the preserve and beyond. The goal of the SDTT is to train volunteers to join the local tracking teams in conducting quarterly surveys of critical wildlife corridors and preserves through San Diego County. The SDTT serves as the umbrella organization for the following teams: Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve Tracking Team, Mount Woodson Wildlife Trackers, Preserve Calavera Tracking Team, Rose Canyon Tracking Team, Mission Trails Regional Park Tracking Team, Blue Sky Tracking Team, and the Anza-Borrego Tracking Team.

Animals mean the world to me and sharing the word of this organization with others will help increase the changes of animals in need to be taken care for or given love. Every animal needs a fair amount of attention and needs to feel wanted because it doesnt take much time of our lives to make a fella or fello happy. The more people involved the more animals will be nurtured making their lives better. They will feel a place in this world that they have never felt before and warm their hearts. I hope to hear from you guys as well because it would absolutelt make me happy to have the ability to work and love these amazing animals thank you for your time.
