About this project
The NSW Department of Primary Industries (formerly the NSW Department of Agriculture) was contracted by the Australian Government Department of the Environment and Water Resources to undertake a Natural Heritage Trust project that develops model standard operating procedures for the humane care and use of pest animals in Australia for the purposes of scientific research.
The NSW Department of Primary Industries has undertaken public consultation, including with other State and Territory agencies, in preparing the Standard Operating Procedures. While the Procedures have not been adopted nationally by all jurisdictions, some of these organisations are adopting them wholly or in part for their own use.
