All native birds, reptiles, amphibians and mammals (except the dingo) are protected in New South Wales by the Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016.

Some native birds are not protected in certain parts of the state to prevent damage or harm to crops and livestock.

Where possible, the Department of Planning and Environment tries to resolve negative interactions with native animals using non-destructive methods.

However, in some instances, the department may grant a licence to harm individual animals granted under the Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016.
