Declarations currently imposing restrictions on keeping birds. Includes surveillance, restricted, controlled and all-Wales prevention zones.
The Avian Influenza Prevention Zone (AIPZ) is no longer in place, as of 4 July, 2023. There are currently no declarations imposing restrictions.
Bird keepers are advised to continue to complete the biosecurity self-assessment checklist. Scrupulous biosecurity is the most effective method of disease control available. Whilst the risk to kept birds has reduced, all bird keepers should still follow enhanced biosecurity measures at all times to prevent the risk of future outbreaks. Follow our Biosecurity and preventing disease in captive birds guidance.
Keepers can check if they are in a disease control or prevention zone on the avian influenza disease map (from the Animal and Plant Health Agency).
