This is a Worldwide law concerning trade in endangered species
To prevent people from catching wild animals and selling them to other countries, the Washington Convention (official name: Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) was adopted in 1973. More than 160 countries have signed it. We are banned from selling and buying the plants and animals listed in the convention.
