About the inventory
All exotic birds in Australia have been classified as either 'high interest' or 'low interest' based on their pest and disease risk and the potential for illegal trade in the species.
To find out whether your birds are high interest or low interest read the 2007 Inventory of Exotic (non-native) Bird Species known to be in Australia.
This inventory has been compiled from information gathered by the Australian Government Department of the Environment and Water Resources to record exotic bird species believed to be in Australia.
The inventory is not a list of species that have been legally imported into Australia. Buyers of exotic birds should therefore ensure that the seller is able to provide a genuine copy of relevant documents and records for individual birds that prove legal entry or legal ownership.
