You need this licence if you intend to interact with protected animals in the wild as part of your business.
The department will consider the following activities to be part of your business if either:
- the activity is marketed as part of your normal business
- the activity is advertised in any brochure or advertising material and occurs at a scheduled time, even if the activity occurs infrequently
- clients pay to participate in the activity
- your business derives some benefit, including public notoriety, as a result of conducting the activity.
Your activity will not be considered to be a part of your business if it is opportunistic or random in nature.
