Report a sighting

Your sightings are important as they help us to better understand where local species are living in the Sturt Catchment. We encourage you to email us your observations at least once a year.

Please report your sightings of vulnerable and endangered species in the Sturt Catchment:

  • Cunningham’s Skink (Egernia cunninghami
  • Rosenberg’s Goanna (Varanus rosenbergi)
  • Pygmy copperhead snake (Austrelaps labialis)
  • Yellow-footed antechinus (Antechinus flavipes)
  • Southern brown bandicoot (Isoodon obesulus)

We will forward all sightings to the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, and to the Atlas of Living Australia.

We also recommend reporting sightings of the Rakali water rat (Hydromys chrysogaster) to improve knowledge of the distribution and ecology of this icon species of our waterways.  The Australian Platypus Conservancy is also collecting this information nationally so we will forward all sightings to them.
