Rakali.com is dedicated to improving our knowledge of and to assist in the protection of the Water-rat, also known as the ‘Rakali’.

Rakali occupy both fresh water and marine habitats. They can be found in many rivers, waterways, canals, lakes, estuaries and bays that are in good environmental health.

Our website will concentrate on several Melbourne suburbs in the City of Port Phillip such as Elwood and St Kilda.

We invite you to submit your own Rakali sightings to us by selecting the "Your Sightings" button and submitting the form or use this link  http://rakali.com/21.html

If you are seeing them in other areas of Melbourne or elsewhere in Victoria we would like to know about your sightings.

Use this link to watch Video Clips of Rakali filmed in and around St Kilda:

The Rakali Watch Team is part of an environmental group called Earthcare St Kilda Inc. See links page for more information on Earthcare and its activities.
