Kangaroos in NSW are protected by the Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016.

As part of the Kangaroo Management Program, the Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) grants different types of biodiversity conservation licences under Part 2 of the Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016 to harvest kangaroos for the commercial purposes of supplying meat and skin products.

A Commercial Harvester (Kangaroo) Professional Licence and a Commercial Harvester (Kangaroo) Landholder Licence authorise persons with valid firearm licences and accreditations to harvest kangaroos and sell the carcass, in accordance with licence conditions and a valid commercial tag advice.

An Animal Dealer (Kangaroo) Licence authorises the licensees to deal in kangaroo carcases obtained from licenced harvesters.

An Animal Dealer (Kangaroo) Restricted Licence authorises the licensees to deal in kangaroo carcases obtained from other licensed Animal Dealer (Kangaroo) Licensees.

An Animal Dealer (Kangaroo Skin) Licence authorises the licensees to obtain and process kangaroo skins from licensed Animal Dealer (Kangaroo) Licensees or Animal Dealer (Kangaroo) Restricted Licensees. The NSW Commercial Kangaroo Harvest Management Plan 2017-2021 prohibits the taking of kangaroos for their skin only.
