What’s this about?
The draft code of practice sets out compliance requirements for possessing and dealing in protected animal specimens, such as taxidermy carcasses, animal materials, animal parts and skeletal materials. The code will not apply to certain activities and specimens. This includes but is not limited to:
- individuals carrying out the process of taxidermy
- threatened species specimens, birds of prey specimens
- unpreserved specimens (blood, tissue and organs) and importing and exporting protected preserved specimens to and from New South Wales – these activities may still require a biodiversity conservation licence.
We are seeking specific feedback about what you would like to see change, and why you believe changes should be made. Real life examples of how changes may or may not work in practice are encouraged as these will give National Parks and Wildlife Services NPWS the best understanding of key issues.
