Report a wildlife Emergency

Before you begin:

The department recognises that although extreme weather occurs as part of our natural environment, the frequency and intensity of extreme weather is increasing due to anthropogenic climate change. Extreme weather may cause impacts to native animals at an individual level or across a population.

Anyone can make a report to the Department for Environment and Water raising an animal welfare concern about native wildlife impacted by floods. The department will use information provided in a report to investigate the issue and take action if necessary. The report may be shared to a 3rdparty assisting the department with responding to native wildlife impacted by floods.

Please note: Your personal details will be kept confidential unless you authorise the department to share them with an outside organisation who may assist the department.

The information provided on this form is protected by the South Australian Government’s Information Privacy Principles, but may be subject to access under the Freedom of Information Act 1991.

The Freedom of Information Act 1991 gives a person the right to be given access to information held by the government in accordance with the Act.
