Wildlife and Countryside Act Licences
General licences are used for low risk conservation or protected species activities.
General licences allow people to carry out most protected species activities without needing a personal licence.
If there is no general licence for your activity, you will need to apply for a personal licence.
Using a general licence
If you plan to use a general licence, you must:
- be eligible to do so (each licence has its own conditions - people who have been convicted of wildlife crimes after 01 January 2008 cannot use general licences)
- act within the licence conditions and the law.
It is your responsibility to read the licence conditions and comply with them. However, you do not need to carry a paper copy of the licence.
Some general licences require yearly reporting of the actions you carry out. The reporting forms will be available on the same page as the related licence.
What activities can you carry out under general licence and for which species?
General licences are issued for a range of activities. Licences and examples of when they may be used are available below.
Current licences (valid from 01 January 2013)
Most general licences are valid from 1 January until 31 December each year. When licences are renewed there may be changes to the terms and conditions or accompanying advice. You should read the latest version of any licence before you use it for the first time each year.
The current licences are available individually below.
