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
