What this website provides

Introduced species such as exotic birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians or mammals (including animals kept in captivity) can cause significant problems if deliberately or accidentally released into the wild. Introduced animals should never be released into the wild. They can potentially threaten native plants and animals, spread disease, affect human health, and impact on agriculture. 

This website provides a simple method for you to report possible sightings of the introduced Red-eared Slider Turtle and American Corn Snake.

These pests have recently been found in the wild in Australia. They are considered high-risk pest species because they can cause significant problems. If you suspect you may have seen either of these species in your local area, please report the sighting immediately. Your report can help local experts to protect our environment, people, human health and agricultural industries.
