You will require written permission if you wish to use wildlife in a production. A production is in TV, film productions, advertisements or in theatrical performances. The wildlife used can be living or dead, or parts of wildlife.
Licensed Wildlife Displayers, Demonstrators and Taxidermists are allowed to provide wildlife for this purpose but must obtain the permission of the Agency beforehand and allow 6-8 weeks for processing.
Permission is not required if the wildlife is filmed in the wild and is not confined, controlled or manipulated in any way.
Wildlife must not be taken from the wild for this purpose. If the filming is taking place in a National Park, then permission must be obtained from Parks Victoria.
Please consult the responsible agency for more information and to ascertain the level of compliance (if any) that may be required.
