Wildlife Victoria’s Historical Data

This tool allows you to explore the data collected at Wildlife Victoria over the years.

You can select a specific year, species, status, and cause type to see the associated cases (use CTRL to select multiple options in each category). Suburbs in grey do not have any cases for the specific query. The redder the colour is for a specific suburb, the more cases there are in this suburb. You can use your mouse to hover over a suburb to find out the number of cases.

Status refers to the IUCN Red List of threatened species and the categories are as follows:

  • LC = Least Concern
  • VU = Vulnerable
  • NT= Near Threatened
  • EN= Endangered
  • CR = Critically Endangered.

You can also select threatened species in the state of Victoria (listed under Department of Environment, Land, Water & Planning Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act 1988 Threatened List) and you can select native or non-native species (source of data: Victorian Biodiversity Atlas and Atlas of Living Australia).

If you click on “Year animation”, you will see how the cases selected change over time.

Explore the map to see a sample of the animals that needed our help in your local area last month. Each point on this map relates to a single animal, or family of animals, reported to Wildlife Victoria last month.

We get so many calls that not all our cases fit on the map, accordingly, this map is not an exact reflection of all our cases from the month. This map should only be used as an indicative sample.
