Phuket warn residents not to sell products from parts of protected and conserved wild animals

conserved wild animals Paiboon Panchaiyabhum, the Director of Coastal and Marine Resource Conservation area 5 (Phuket), said that there have been inspections in flea markets around Phuket to see if there were parts of wild animals sold in the markets. It was found that there were many products made from parts of protected or conserved animals sold in the markets. Those products included necklaces and bracelets made from corals and turtle shells. These products violated the 1992 Protected and Conserved Animals Act. Anybody owning parts of such animals would either be fined 40,000 baht or put into jail for up to 4 years.

The director warned that there would be continuous inspections on the island, so the residents should not sell or own such products. To inform officers about these illegal products, please call 076 393566-7 or 081 5370047.
