New Wildlife Regulations from 1 July 2019

The South Australian Government’s new National Parks and Wildlife (Wildlife) Regulations 2019
came into effect from 1 July 2019.

The Wildlife Regulations aim to protect and manage wildlife across South Australia by providing a
framework to better support people working with our native wildlife.

Changes include:

  • Redefined permits to better reflect activities, with clearer purpose and limitations
  • Reduction in reporting
  • Easier online services for record keeping and permit applications
  • Updated schedules for each species known to be kept in captivity based on difficulty of
    management and conservation status.

Attached are some of the Guides that may be relevant to the work you do (click on the links):
