Military exercises

General information

The Australian Defence Force (ADF) may get permission to access certain state-managed lands to conduct military survival exercises. These uses of parks and forests are carefully regulated to ensure that they do not impact on the conservation or management values of the area.

The ADF may take least concern animals for use in survival exercises by defence force personnel without approval, provided the taking is consistent with the relevant Military Standing Order for the Military Unit involved.

The ADF is not permitted to take threatened animals when conducting survival exercises.
