In the present study, considering the advantages of using database management system for maintenance, use and management of data, the design and implementation of a wildlife spatial database sample in Khuzestan province is carried out. In the design and implementation of the target database, the PostgreSQL / PostGIS object-relational database was used. According to the findings of the study, the PostgreSQL / PostGIS open source database management system was identified as an appropriate option for the development of the spatial data management capabilities of wildlife. It was also found that the designed system was able to support all possible questions related to wildlife spatial data, providing a solution to some issues and problems related to the management of a huge amount of wildlife scattered data. Also, due to the success of the present research, the necessity of focusing on the organization and management of wildlife information in the country and its inclusion in the context of the policy of the Environmental Protection Agency of the nation has been emphasized, and the need for the creation and development of a comprehensive spatial database of the wildlife of is pointed out.
