Many animals and birds cause severe damage to agriculture and the environment. They can:
- carry diseases or parasites
- damage agricultural crops
- displace native animals and plants
- damage property
- cause land degradation
- have a negative impact on pets.
These primarily introduced species (species that have originated in another country) have been declared by the Minister for Agriculture and Food as either prohibited organisms or permitted organisms under the Biosecurity and Agriculture Management Act 2007 (BAMA).
This bulletin lists those animals which can be kept under a permit in aviculture and as pets or companion animals, or are stock animals. Species that are exempt don’t require a permit to keep and are listed in the tables in keeping category K5.
