What species to report

Introduced Red-eared Slider Turtles and Corn Snakes (also called America Corn Snakes) have recently been found in the wild in multiple locations and are likely to become a serious pest problem. If you think you might have seen these animals, please report them immediately. We need your help to protect our native species, ecosystems and agriculture.

Why are there introduced animals in the wild?


Unusual non-native animals have been introduced to Australia through many avenues, including authorised and illegal routes. If these animals are deliberately released or escape from captivity, wild populations may establish and cause a lot of problems. If you have found or seen an animal in the wild that you suspect is not a native animal, and if it is not an established introduced species (such as a fox, rabbit, feral pig or deer), please use this website to report your sighting. If you are unsure whether the animal you have seen is a native or introduced species, please contact local authorities - Click here


What problems can introduced animals cause?

  • Introduce and transmit exotic animal diseases and harmful parasites.

  • Impact pets, farmed and native animals.

  • Compete with native wildlife for food and shelter.

  • Degrade or destroy natural habitats.

  • Impact negatively on legitimate industries, such as the pet trade.

  • Threaten human health and safety, e.g. disease.
