Native animal sightings are regularly reported to Council. If you see an animal or plant of interest let us know. Anything that makes you say, "wow" is going to be worth reporting.
Submit your sighting online to the Moreton Bay animal atlas or contact Council
Council participates in many conservation projects, and supports environmental conservation groups working in the region. This includes support for the FaunaWatch program which is operated by the Wildlife Queensland's Sunshine Coast branch. The long term objective of FaunaWatch is to record local observations and build a database of the diversity and distribution of fauna in the Region.
You can make a significant contribution towards the conservation of native species by recording animal observations (pest and native) in the Moreton Bay Region. Survey forms can be completed for individual sightings or over a period of time.
For further information, or to report a sighting visit FaunaWatch.
