Protocol for the Responsible Management of Wildlife Affected by Land Clearing and the Modification of Wildlife Habitats

The protocol establishes guidelines to ensure that appropriate measures are available to those involved in the destruction or modification of wildlife habitats; the overall purpose being to minimize the adverse effects on wild animal welfare and conservation.

The protocol emphasizes the responsibilities of all relevant parties to take all reasonable steps necessary to prevent suffering to animals; minimize the loss of wildlife caused directly or indirectly by development or land-clearing; and to conserve as much as possible the ecological values of development sites and their surrounding natural environment. The protocol also provides operating procedures and guidelines for biologists and wildlife control operators, on whom much of the responsibility would rest to ensure application of the protocol.
