You will require this licence if you intend to undertake any activity that involves native animals, plants or exotic species. Licences are granted for a variety of purposes, including scientific research, education and commercial trade. Licences may allow you to take, keep, kill, put on public display, sell and import or export native animals, plants or exotic species in the Australian Capital Territory. If your application is successful you will be required to maintain a record of the animals you keep in accordance with the terms of your licence.
A licence is not required to keep, possess, breed, buy, sell or dispose of species listed on the Exempt List. However, the animals must come from a legal source, and may not be taken, or come from the wild.
