Department of Wildlife and National Parks Licences and Fees

Recently one of my friends want to owning a Pica Pica (or we can called it as Eurasian Magpie), but he read the newspaper that since last year March, PERHILITAN (Department of Wildlife and National Parks) had enforced a regulation ( The Wild Animals and Wild Birds Protection Ordinance ) that we must get a license in order to owning Pica Pica and some other birds.

Then he came to me and ask me where can he find the related information. After a little research done, I found the Department of Wildlife and National Parks official website. Now, I’m gonna share this information to you. 🙂

The Department of Wildlife and National Parks is to coordinate the enforcement of wildlife protection in Peninsular Malaysia.
