All staff and students working with animals at The Australian National University are required to attend an Animal Awareness Seminar before their work with animals commences.

The ANU holds licenses to conduct field work involving animals in the following States and Territories: ACT, NSW, QLD, TAS, VIC and WA. Please contact the ANU Animal Ethics Manager on 02 61254290 for information on license conditions.

Individuals must ensure they have obtained the relevant approvals and licensing to conduct field work at specific study sites. For example within National Parks, Nature Reserves, State Forests, Botanical Gardens  and Private Property.

The AEEC requires investigators conducting studies that involve the capture and banding of bats or birds to complete appropriate training and hold the correct banding authority as required by the Australian Bird and Bat Banding Scheme (ABBBS).
