    I was discussing this with a lady from PALM yesterday after making some enquires in regards to my permit etc who I've had the pleasure of dealing with a few times (all good reasons) and she has always been great!
    "I'm confused by all the new licensing bullsh*t"
    She informed me that this should all be coming into affect next year as far as they are aware however, as I am currently renewing my permit due to it expiring soon, I will continue to operate under current conditions for the next 5 years.
    …. Depending on when permits are due to expire, it may even be worth renewing to get the extra time.

    Hey Kyle I haven't heard a word from HCN either, I know a couple of the guys are busy ATM trying to twist their arms over mammals. I'm pretty sure they haven't forgotten about reptiles because they are both breeders. I'll see if I can get an update from 1 of them.

    Apparently everything to do with the license review was sent upstairs before the election and nothing has happened since,typical boofocrats

    Probably be best for us financially if they did nothing for a few more years , i expect they are considering doubling up on fees as in south australia and if so i may go back to a basic license anyway .

    I don’t think fees will go up if the perks don’t go up with them, it’ll just encourage more illegal keeping

    I think the OEH was scared into backing off because of the sheer number of people protesting.
    It remains to be seen if the same happens in other states as I don't think they had the same volume of complaints but all reptile keepers need to get active or else we will all suffer in the end as 1 state after another will take the ambivalence as acceptance

    They anticipated the response from all the parties involved ,its government and they always put out the worst scenarios first ,its the computer programmes that would have to be up and running .The proposals such as a sellers license for online selling would not work ,neither would quotas on animal sales which is why south australia didnt go that way. I would have loved to put reptiles etc in for tax as i could also claim right offs ,but you need really big volumes and theres very few in NSW these days that could do it
