Herpetology Permit Application Form


The Wildlife (General) Regulations 2010 and the Wildlife (Exhibited Animals) Regulations 2010 have been replaced with the Nature Conservation (Wildlife) Regulations 2021. The wording of some permits and licences for activities that involve wildlife has changed as a result. The Department is updating the licenses and permits, and the web pages that relate to them. If you have any questions, please get in contact with us on 03 6165 4305 or via FarmPoint on 1300 292 292.  ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
