How do I cancel my wildlife licence?

Licensees who hold a Companion Native Animal Keeper or Native Animal Keeper licence and no longer wish to keep native animals must contact the Wildlife Team to surrender their licence and submit a licence not required form.

Submit a Licence not required form (PDF 68KB) by email or post.

If you have been registered for the online electronic record keeping system (eBook), please ensure you have updated and lodge all outstanding records.

If you have an NPWS Fauna Record Book, please complete and return the book by post indicating the method of disposal of the animal collection. The licence will then be surrendered. All mail should be addressed to:
