You will require a permit if you intend to rescue injured, sick or orphaned protected animals from the wild. This permit will enable you to take from the wild injured, sick or orphaned animals of protected species for the purpose of short term rehabilitation and release.
You will not require this permit if you are already the holder of a Wildlife Carer Permit or Wildlife Rehabilitation Facility Permit for the species you intend to rescue.
You will require a separate permit to keep a protected animal deemed unfit for release.
Please contact the agency for more information.
