49 Taking of specimens

The Minister may from time to time, by writing under his or her hand, and subject to such conditions as he or she may impose in that behalf, grant any qualified person who in the Minister’s opinion has the necessary credentials a right to take specified specimens of flora or fauna or rock mineral or soil from a reserve for scientific or educational purposes, provided the taking of such specimens does not unduly deplete the number of any species, damage ecological associations, or damage the values of the reserve:

provided that nothing in this section shall authorise the doing of anything with respect to fauna that would contravene anything in the Wildlife Act 1953 or in any regulations or Proclamation or notification under that Act.
