Public register of commercial kangaroo harvesting licences

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.

The public register of kangaroo harvesting licences is a register of the different types of licences granted by OEH that cover a range of commercial kangaroo harvesting activities including:

  • Occupier/landholder licences that authorise property owners or occupiers to engage a licensed harvester to harvest a specified number of kangaroos on their property.
  • Professional harvester's licences that authorise persons with valid firearm licences and accreditations to harvest kangaroos on any property issued with an occupier's licence.
  • Occupier harvester's licences that authorise occupiers with valid firearm licences and accreditations to harvest kangaroos on their own property.
  • Fauna dealer wholesaler licences that authorise licensees to deal in kangaroo carcases obtained from licenced harvesters. Restricted wholesaler licences only authorise licensees to deal in kangaroo carcases obtained from other licensed wholesalers.
  • Skin dealer licences that authorise licensees to obtain and process kangaroo skins from licensed wholesalers.
