Keeping private collections
Keeping private collections of dead protected wildlife
A collection authority for dead protected wildlife may be issued, under the Nature Conservation Act 1992, to an individual or to an institution such as a school, university or educational institution. It is used to keep a collection of dead protected wildlife for reference purposes where the educational purposes permit is not appropriate.
This type of authority can only be issued for a dead protected animal, and cannot be granted for a live animal.
You can also read the legislation online by visiting the Office of Queensland Parliamentary Counsel website.
The department offers a service to guide applicants through the assessment process. The service includes meeting with a departmental project manager to discuss the information that must be provided with your application.
This service can be initiated by contacting Permit and Licence Management or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or completing a Pre-design conference application form. If a meeting is required to discuss your application in more detail, a departmental officer will contact you directly.
