You are invited to give your feedback on our updated List of Declared Animals, and our draft New and Emerging Introduced Animal Policy. Your input will help reduce the risk of declared animals becoming established in South Australia.
What's being decided?
To help prevent the establishment of new pest animals in South Australia, we have updated the current List of Declared Animals and drafted a policy addressing how we manage new and introduced animals to South Australia. We are now in the process of finalising these documents.
List of Declared Animals
We want to know if you support the proposed changes to the List of Declared Animals.
Changes to the current list include:
• taxonomic updates (changes to the scientific names of certain animals)
• the removal of animals that are not in Australia, and cannot be imported
• the addition of animals that are in Australia
• the addition of animals into Class 1 (e.g. red whiskered bulbul)
• the transfer of some animals to a Class with increased restrictions
• the transfer of water buffalo to a Class with fewer restrictions.
This consultation is restricted to Classes 1 - 4 which include animals that are high risk to South Australia, but are not yet here, or are kept in captivity and don’t have established populations in the wild.
New and Emerging Introduced Animal Policy
We also want to know if you support the objectives of the New and Emerging Introduced Animal Policy, to regulate the movement and keeping of introduced animals to prevent incursions into the wild, and to detect and eradicate incursions of new and emerging introduced animals.
To have your say:
How can your input influence the decision?
Your feedback will inform the development of the final updated List of Declared Animals, and our New and Emerging Introduced Animal Policy.
What are the next steps?
The revised List of Declared Animals and the New and Emerging Introduced Animal Policy will be published when the consultation process has concluded.
