I made some new easy games about souvenirs to avoid from different places.
Its very tempting to bring beautiful and exotic souvenirs home, and many people wouldnt know about things to avoid. Many of these souvenirs (in the games) is easily avalable in touristplaces, like corals and shells for example and not all salespeople are honest about the products origins or have knowledge about rules of export/import of wildlife souvenirs.
There is probably more wildlife souvenirs than represented in the games we should avoid, but in general I guess we should avoid most wildlife products. Good to have in mind when traveling.
Anyway, I wish everybody a good summer and great vacation for the lucky travelers!:)
A little more from the WWF guide: "In a number of tourist locations, exotic souvenirs made from body parts originating from animals or plants, or live animals and plants may be offered for sale. However, just because items are openly displayed for sale does not mean it is legal to buy them and bring home. If you consider bringing such wildlife souvenirs with you back home you should be aware that a number of animal and plant species are subject to international regulations and may require permits.
It may even be illegal to bring certain souvenirs back home and these will be seized by Customs upon arrival. To avoid having your wildlife souvenir taken away and risking hefty fines, make sure that you are not bringing home souvenirs made from an animal or plant species that is banned in international trade"
