You will require this permit if you want to keep, sell (or give) and use for scientific purposes, or for the production of biological products, protected animals of any class of species. This may include, for instance, the extraction of snake venom.
This permit is required even if the products are intended for commercial gain.
You may breed protected animals that are being kept under this permit. Unless an animal has been bred by you, it must be held in your possession for 6 months prior to selling or giving.
You will be entitled under this permit to access animal products for scientific or biological purposes other than for carrying out scientific research. You will need a separate permit if you want to undertake scientific research.
You will also need a separate permit if you wish to take a native animal from the wild.
Please contact the agency for more information.
