Development of a model code of practice and standard operating procedures for the humane capture, handling or destruction of feral animals in Australia

The NSW Department of Primary Industries (formerly the NSW Department of Agriculture) was contracted by the Australian Government Department of the Environment and Heritage to undertake a Natural Heritage Trust project to develop Codes of Practice and Standard Operating Procedures for the humane capture, handling and destruction of feral animals.

The NSW Department of Primary Industries has undertaken public consultation, including with other State and Territory agencies, in preparing the Codes of Practice and Standard Operating Procedures. While the Codes and Procedures have not been adopted nationally by all jurisdictions, some of these organisations are adopting them wholly or in part for their own use.
