DELWP is responsible for leading wildlife management issues and providing statewide compliance services, including issuing legal permits to keep or trade wildlife.
By working together with the Victorian community, DELWP
works to reduce the impacts of environmental crime to ensure future generations
can enjoy our flora and fauna.
DELWP also responds to wildlife emergencies, and works
closely with other government sectors and non-government organisations to
ensure wildlife are protected from suffering during and after emergencies.
