What is a Wildlife Display Permit (WDP)?
The most common reasons for applying for a WDP are for an Educational Facility, a Herpetology and/or Avian display, or for Registered Rehabilitator display.
A Wildlife Display Permit authorises the holder to do the following without additional authority:
• display the wildlife specified in the permit subject to and in accordance with the Nature Conservation (Wildlife) Regulations 2021 (Exhibited Animals) and any terms of the permit.
A WDP does not authorise the possession of wildlife or products of wildlife; this requires an additional permit.
Further information can be found on the WDP fact sheet which is included in the application form.
How do I apply?
If you want to apply for a WDP, you will need to complete a Wildlife Display Permit Application form. Please ensure you read the fact sheet before completing the application.
Educational Facility and Herpetology and/or Avian display applications must be completed and lodged at Service Tasmania inclusive of payment of the application fees.
Registered Rehabilitators should return their application form directly to NRE Tas.
