Management of Wildlife


The Department has undergone a review process for the Wildlife (General) Regulations 2010 and the Wildlife (Exhibited Animals) Regulations 2010. This will result in the making of a consolidated set of regulations to be known as the Nature Conservation (Wildlife) Regulations 2021. These regulations will come into effect from December 2021. This will have some impact on the wording of some permits and licences for activities that involve wildlife. The Department will update the licenses and permits, and the web pages that relate to them, as soon as possible once the remaking process has been finalised. If you have any questions please get in contact with us on 03 6165 4305 or via FarmPoint on 1300 292 292. ​
