Report a Sighting

If you believe that you have seen an animal or plant that is claimed to be globally extinct, was rediscovered, or is only known in captivity, please get in contact with me. You can simply fill out the Contact Us form provided. Or you can send me a letter via the postal system:

PO Box 21,

Two Rocks (postcode 6037),

Western Australia,


Any reports received will be dealt with under the strictest of confidence and anonymity is assured, unless you specify otherwise. Please try to include as much detail as possible, including date and location of sighting/s, length of time observed, distance observed from, physical appearance of the animal1, number of individuals seen, and the behaviour of the animals (including whether you believe that they noticed your presence or not). A similar report should be made to your local conservation agency or group so that a follow up to the sighting can be made as soon as possible to ensure the greatest chance of successfully finding these 'lost' species.
