Standard Licence Applications
The keeping of some wildlife including reptiles is an offence in the ACT unless a licence is held under the Nature Conservation Act 2014 authorising the activity. The application process considers the suitability of the applicant, relevant regulations and policies for the keeping of non-exempt species under legislation.
All licensed native animal keepers are required to maintain a record book and lodge it prior to renewal or at the end of the licence period. The record sheets may also be requested by a Conservation Officer as per licence conditions. This document provides a fast and easy form to download however record books are available upon request.
