- During the six month period from 3 December 2020, you can post your tortoiseshell items to WWF-Australia through Australia Post.
- You’ll need to complete the questionnaire on www.wwf.org.au/surrenderyourshell
. The information you provide about where the item was purchased and when, helps us to understand trade routes and potential poaching hot spots.
- Print a copy of the WWF-Australia confirmation email or write down the unique identification number from the email for each piece of tortoiseshell surrendered and attach to your surrendered product. You can post your item by visiting a Post Office, or use the Australia Post eParcel Portal linked in the email from WWF-Australia once you have completed the questionnaire.
- For parcels less than 500g sent through Australia Post’s eParcel Portal users will pay $8.95 (including GST). However for the first 100 parcels sent, WWF-Australia will pay the eParcel fee for you, but you will still be required to package your item/s at your own expense.
Parcels registered using the eParcels Return Portal can be lodged and sent by:
- Printing Australia Post’s eParcel ID labels at home, and affixing to your own packaging, then depositing in an Australia Post box.
- Visiting a Post Office with your eParcel ID on your preferred device. The Post Office can print the labels for you free of charge and affix to your packaging, or the Port Office can provide packaging for the items at your expense.
- Parcels weighing more than 500g, must be lodged at a Post Office. Visit a Post Office with your printed WWF-Australia confirmation email, and package the surrendered items appropriately. The customer will pay for postage and any packaging required.
- For any oversized items, please contact WWF-Australia. Couriers may be organised for collection on an as-needs basis.
