    To Whom It May Concern,

    I spotted a Numbat on the 1/04/2012 in Woodlands just after 10.30pm. The Numbat was sighted near a kerb coming out of a small patch of bushland and was about to cross the road at Rosewood Ave, between Princess Road and Parramatta Rd. Fortunately for my sister and I were lucky enough not to have run the Numbat over. There is alot of Tuart trees and bushland reserves in this area which combines Woodlands, Wembley Downs, Scarborough & Churchlands.
    I believe the Numbat may have come from the bushland reserve situated next to the Hale High School or Newman College, as there is lots of Tuart trees in this location.

    I telephoned the City of Stirling and asked to speak to a Ranger and was told that the Ranger would phone me back regarding my sighting. It has now been nearly 2 months since I made the call.

    I got a clear shot of the Numbat and it definately was not a possum, as I my sister has also seen them up close in the wild. Would appreciate if you could look into this matter.

    Kind Regards,

    I think I saw a numbat in my back garden in Roseville Sydney. At approximately 7pm the animal dropped out of a tree and ran rapidly a cross the lawn. Pointed nose and bushy tail sticking up. Too dark to see the markings.
