Review of protected animals management framework
The Department of Environment and Science recently consulted on a number of proposed options for the future management of protected animals, with a particular focus on commercial and recreational wildlife licencing. These proposed options are explained in the ‘Consultation Regulatory Impact Statement: Reviewing the framework for the management of protected wildlife (animals) in Queensland under the Nature Conservation Act 1992 (PDF, 2.11MB).
Submissions have now closed.
All feedback received during this period will be considered in the decision-making process going forward.
This Consultation Regulatory Impact Statement followed on from public feedback received on the discussion paper ‘Reviewing the framework for the management of protected wildlife (animals) in Queensland’, which was released for public consultation in July 2016.
For any further questions regarding the consultation process, or next steps in the review, please feel free to email the Conservation and Biodiversity Policy Unit via NC.Act@des.qld.gov.au.
