Are you looking for a challenge? Can you identify flora and fauna in Australia or New Zealand? If so, we need your help!

Below are some of the things we saw during our park surveys in Sydney and Melbourne, Australia, or Auckland and Wellington, New Zealand. We were unable to identify them or aren't sure. If you know what any of these animals or plants are, we would love it if you let us know! Any information is useful - common name, species, genus, family - whatever you have. Please remember to include the photo code so we know which image you are referring to.

Feel free to scroll down, or skip to fauna or flora.

Thank you in advance!
