Report a Sighting of an Extinct or 'Missing' Organism

If you believe that you have seen a plant or animal that is feared to be globally extinct, or a wild individual of a (sub)species that is supposed to only exist in captivity, please get in contact with me. You can simply fill out the Contact Us form.

All reports received will be mentioned on this website with personal details omitted. Please try to include as much detail as possible, including date and location of sighting, length of time observed, distance from the individual/s observed, physical appearance, number of individuals seen, the behaviour of the animals, etc. A similar report should be made to your local conservation agency or group so that a follow up to the sighting can be made as soon as possible to ensure the greatest chance of successfully finding these 'lost' species.
