Help stop illegal native vegetation clearing

We need your help to stop illegal clearing of native vegetation. OEH receives hundreds of reports of alleged illegal clearing each year. To help us build a database of information to focus our resources, and target our education and enforcement campaigns, please report suspected illegal native vegetation clearing to OEH. You can contact 131 555 or send an email to info@environment.nsw.gov.au  

The more information we have, the better. Before submitting a report, try to obtain the following details:

  • type of activity
  • time, date and location of activity
  • description, registration numbers and type of any vehicles or plant involved
  • an estimate of the size of the cleared area
  • any other information you think is relevant - the more information you can provide the better.

All information will be recorded and used to guide future compliance programs which can include warning letters, remediation notices, penalty notices, and in serious cases, prosecutions. Any information you provide will be treated confidentially.
