Public register of threatened species licences

Threatened species licences are a type of biodiversity conservation licence granted under Part 2 of the Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016 (BC Act) to:

  • harm to an animal that is a threatened species or part of a threatened ecological community
  • pick a plant that is a threatened species or part of a threatened ecological community
  • damage habitat of a threatened species or ecological community, or
  • damage a declared area of outstanding biodiversity value.

A public register of threatened species licences granted under the BC Act and all decisions made to vary, suspend or cancel those licences will be available soon on the OEH website.

Please note the public register of threatened species licences will only show licences processed after 25 August 2017.

For details of licences to harm threatened species before this date under section 91 of the Threatened Species Act 1995, please contact the relevant OEH Office or visit the register archives:
