Citizen Science - Get Involved

Baseline data is vital for effective control of Declared Pests and we need your help.

We need you to tell us where they are, what they are doing and how you are being impacted.


We are particularly interested in signs and sightings of our current focus declared pests:

  • Feral Pig, Feral Cat, Feral Rabbit and European Red Fox

  • Narrow Leaf Cottonbush, Paterson’s Curse, Cape Tulip, Bridal Creeper, Cleavers, Myrtle Rust


Please report any other pests that concern you, so that we can establish numbers, trends and hotspots.
