The Code of Practice for Wildlife Rehabilitation in Western Australia  aims to ensure that the activities of all parties involved in the rehabilitation of native animals in WA result in the best possible conservation and animal welfare outcomes for rehabilitated animals and the wild populations they are returned to. The code will be referred to as a condition on the Fauna possessing (other purposes) licence, when issued. 

People possessing live fauna for rehabilitation have responsibilities under the Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016, the Biodiversity Conservation Regulations 2018 and the Animal Welfare Act 2002.

This version is currently marked as a draft and will remain so for approximately 12 months.
