Report an unusual animal sighting

If you’ve seen or know of an unusual non-native animal, report it straight away.

This includes illegal activities such as the movement, keeping, breeding or sale of animals listed as Prohibited Dealings in the Biosecurity Act 2015.

These animals can have an adverse impact on agriculture and the environment and your action could help prevent them becoming established pest animals.

Thank you for taking the time to report.
