NOTHING TO DECLARE ...
Every year, tourists unwittingly break the law when they return home from Kenya with souvenirs made from protected species. Not only do such possessions present a direct threat to endangered wildlife, and if you are caught, you could be fined and your purchase confiscated.
There is never any excuse for not knowing the law, no matter which country you are from or visiting.
THE WORLD WIDE FUND FOR NATURE WARNS THAT IT IS ILLEGAL TO BRING BACK INTO THE UK:
- ELEPHANT IVORY
- CORAL AND SEA SHELLS
giant clams. Taking shells from the beach or purchasing them from pedlars is also illegal.
- BIRDS AND FEATHERS
in Kenya. Many countries ban the export of their native species.
