You will be required to apply for a permit if you intend to undertake activities that will have a significant effect on the environment. Any persons or companies intending to undertake activities in Commonwealth areas that may affect listed species or cause significant impact to ecological communities must have a permit.
A significant impact is an impact which is important, notable, or of consequence in context or intensity. Whether or not an action is likely to have a significant impact depends upon the sensitivity, value, and quality of the environment which is impacted, and upon the intensity, duration, magnitude and geographic extent of the impacts.
You should consider all of these factors when determining whether an action is likely to have a significant impact on the environment.
It is an offence to kill, injure, take, trade, keep or move a member of a listed species or ecological community (such as a whale or dolphin) without a permit.
