Key elements of the policy include:

  • a strategic approach to licensing wildlife rehabilitation groups, which focuses on consolidating existing services
  • an area-based licensing system with a provision for neighbouring groups to authorise members in each other's area through a Memorandum of Understanding
  • a specified level of Department engagement with groups including attending meetings, contributing to training courses and auditing rehabilitation facilities.
