Any vendor who is applying for or renewing their Class III Permit and plans to vend at shows in FL, needs to submit an itinerary that tells FWC where and when they plan on doing a Mobile Exhibition.
The rule for needing the calendar itinerary is 68A-6.005 (Transportation Requirements for Wildlife; Caging Requirements for Performing and Non-Performing Animals) and can be found at www.FLrules.org. Vendors just need to write a letter including their name and business name (whichever is on their Class III Permit) and list the show dates and venue addresses where they plan on vending. That letter may be faxed or mailed in anytime before the show. Vendors can send a fax right up until the show, but it is recommended no later than about 1-2 days before a show for fax and a week beforehand for mail.
The fax # is: 850-921-6283. It should be labeled Att: Captive Wildlife Office.
Mailing address is:
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
