FaunaWatch is a community-based program run by Wildlife Queensland’s Sunshine Coast Branch.

Do you look out for wildlife when you’re out and about? If so, become a FaunaWatch observer and tell us what you see.


The FaunaWatch program collects and compiles sighting information submitted by community volunteers. We’re not just interested in rare or threatened species – what you see in your own backyard or local park is just as important to us.

Population monitoring of species can identify changes as early as possible, so that fauna protection plans can be established.

FaunaWatch began in 1998 in Caloundra City and has since expanded to the entire Sunshine Coast Regional Council area, as well as the Moreton Bay Regional Council and the Fraser Coast Regional Council areas. We hope the program will expand to other regions of Queensland in the coming year.

FaunaWatch needs more observers in all the areas listed above – to become a FaunaWatch observer, complete this registration form and forward it to the Coordinator. The registration form includes instructions on how to accurately complete the survey forms.
