Science and research plays an important part in the protection of biodiversity. The department takes advice from scientists and administers a range of programs and facilities involved in scientific research into the conservation and sustainable use of Australia's biodiversity.
Export or import of specimens for research purposes
The non-commercial export or import of a specimen may be approved for scientific research if the project will result in a better understanding or increased knowledge: of the taxon; of the conservation of biodiversity; or of the maintenance and/or improvement of human health.
The Australian Government's Plan for a Cleaner Environment - Clean Air, Clean Land, Clean Water and National Heritage - will help realise the vision of a great society by protecting and improving our environment for future generations.
