Report Native Wildlife or Plants

For Council and the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage to have a better understanding of the distribution and trends of threatened species in our region we need more data. 

Have you seen a threatened animal or plant in the Mid-Western Region?

We are encouraging all residents and visitors to report your sightings using the Threatened Species Reporting Form (PDF 135Kb)

Sightings can be made from your own property, road reserves, or parks.  Reporting sightings will help improve our understanding of our local biodiversity and help contribute to the management of these species. Please note that this information may be made available to the Office of Environment and Heritage for their Atlas of NSW Wildlife Database.
