This site represents best information available to our research team and is a starting point for further research. Please read the Introduction to understand the information on this site.
Thankyou for the hundreds of messages we have recieved since the launch. Due to the large volume of comments, it will take a long time to work through each case as we are a small team with limited funding.
We intend to continue research into WA, NT and SA in future. We apologise that we did not have the resources to include the whole of Australia in the first release.
We welcome suggestions for additions or modifications to the site, the data and the map. We take potential errors seriously. This is an ongoing project that invites corrections from the public. Each potential error will be fully investigated and the results posted on the website. Due to the large volume of comments, it will take a long time to work through each case as we are a small team with limited funding.
We maintain rigorous standards for inclusion and use conservative estimates. This does not mean we are dismissing or downplaying the incidents - instead we hope to protect the integrity of the information and that this will help bring more evidence to light.
