Does your luggage break wildlife laws?
The Australian Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities and New Zealand's Department of Conservation have jointly produced a series of brochures for Pacific Island countries.
The brochures are modelled on an existing Australian publication If in doubt - check it out, and are aimed at educating the public about the Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) regulations.
Translated into seven Pacific languages - Samoan, Tongan, Fijian, Tok Pisin (Papua New Guinea), Palauan, Pijin (Solomon Islands) and Bislama (Vanuatu) - the seven brochures are being distributed to countries throughout the Oceania Pacific region.
Copies of the brochure can be obtained by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone +61 (02) 62742302.
