Public submissions on proposed wildlife licensing changes

The Office of Environment and Heritage sought community and stakeholder feedback on proposed changes to wildlife licensing.

A discussion paper about proposed changes to wildlife licences was released for public consultation from 12 June to 24 July 2018, along with draft codes of practice for animal keeping and a draft revised Animal Keepers Species List.

We received a total of 24 submissions from organisations and 165 submissions from individuals and businesses. The publicly available submissions are listed below.

Feedback received will be considered in finalising changes to wildlife licensing with approved changes to be progressively implemented from late 2018.
