Subject: Feathers
Date: Thu, 21 Jun 2001 13:35:54 +1000
Like in Victoria, it is an offence in NSW to be in possession of feathers of 
native birds unless a licence has been obtained under the NSW National Parks 
and Wildlife Act, 1974 to authorise their possession.  Under the NPW Act the 
definition of "bird" includes both living and dead specimens, the eggs, the 
skin, feathers or any other part of a bird.  The purpose is to guard against 
the intentional destruction of birds to meet varied cultural and market demands.
