Wildlife Protection — México

Jump to: navigation, search

México prohibits the possession or export of most species of wildlife and any products made from them. Products made with protected wildlife are prevelent in México's markets. Tourists, unaware of their illegal contents, often buy them as souvenirs only to have them confiscated when leaving México or entering their home country. For minor transgressions the penalty is usually confiscation while in severe cases a stiff fine may be levied from Méxican authorities or the authorities back home.

Be suspicious of products that include:

  • sea turtles
  • fur from spotted cats
  • native birds
  • black coral jewelry
  • stuffed animals
  • crocodile, caiman, or iguana leather
  • animal skeletal remains.
