RSPCA Policy E06 Import and export of wild animals

6.1RSPCA Australia is opposed to the import or export of animals taken from the wild as the capture, transportation, confinement and acclimatisation of wild animals causes them unacceptable distress and suffering.
6.2Export of captive-bred native animals should only be permitted for non-commercial purposes from a government-approved facility in Australia to an equivalent government-approved facility overseas where adequate care can be guaranteed.

(adopted 6/12/10)
