You require this licence if you intend to harvest, keep and trade in protected plants. This licence focuses on protecting species that face real risk, in particular:
- threatened species - those native plants listed as critically endangered, endangered and vulnerable and near threatened species under the Act
- special least concern species - least concern plant species subject to harvesting pressure because of their commercial value or their special characteristics (e.g. being slow growing or slow to reproduce).
Please contact the administering agency for more information.
