Wildlife licences

Natural Resources Wales now issues all species licences under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 and 2010 Habitats Regulations (European protected species licences).

We will continue to issue badger licences under Section 10(2) and (3) of the Protection of Badgers Act 1992.

We have transferred the license information previously held to Natural Resources Wales (external link).

Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA), and Natural England deal with wildlife licensing in England. For more information please visit the DEFRA website (external link).
