You will need to apply for this permit if you intend to take protected animals from the wild, including for the purposes of breeding, education, training or the production of biological products. This permit applies also to the taking of eggs of protected animals.
An animal is a protected animal if it is native to Australia or classified as an exempt, basic or specialist species. Exempt species are very common in captivity and/or their natural habitat and do not ordinarily require a permit to keep or sell. Basic species are common in captivity and/or their natural habitat, and are listed in the legislation. Specialist species are unlisted, though may be difficult to keep, threatened or rare.
You will not need this permit to take unprotected animals, except for galahs or little corellas.
You will need a separate permit if you want to keep, display or sell the protected animal.
Please consult the agency for more information.
