The Code sets the standards for the care and housing of macropods that are incapable of fending for themselves in their natural habitat.
It is designed to be read in conjunction with the Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) Code of Practice for Injured, Sick and Orphaned Protected Fauna (General Code).
Compliance with the standards in the Code is a condition of a biodiversity conservation licence to rehabilitate and release sick, injured and orphaned protected animals issued under the Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016.
