Animal species requirements

Animal species have specific requirements in South Australia for:

  • identification and movement
  • disease prevention
  • healthy feeding and farming practices
  • controlling feral populations.

Some commonly farmed species are supported by industry funds.

Wildlife also need help when they are sick or injured, which involves following safety guidelines.
