User Registration

If you are a user of the software distributed by the Species Conservation Toolkit Initiative (SCTI), please consider registering with at least some minimal information, so that we can better meet your needs.


Information that you provide below will be used by the SCTI only for the purposes of helping us to understand better where and how the software tools are being used and to allow us notify you (if you so choose) of major upgrades. The data you provide will not be shared with any other organizations for any purpose. The only information required on this form is a username (which can be anything you want, as long as no one else has already chosen that username) and identification of which SCTI software you use. However, we appreciate knowing more about our users. If you no longer want to receive notices of upgrades, you can remove or edit your prior registration on the Edit Registration page. 


Provide a UserName*


(The UserName can be anything that you choose, and will be used only as a means by which you can later edit or remove your registration. )


 Check this box to give us permission to contact you by email to notify you of major upgrades and to survey users about needs.
