DO NOT buy products made from wild animals and exotic hard woods! If people do not buy products made from wild animals, the people who hunt and trap wild animals will have to stop making products. Products made from exotic hard woods often come from the rainforest that is home to many endangered animals. Ask if you are not sure what a product is made of and where it comes from.
DO NOT buy live animals that have been taken from the wild. When even one animal is taken from the wild it encourages trappers to catch more. This includes all animals: mammals, reptiles, amphibians, birds, fish, and even insects. If you would like an exotic animal for a pet, ask the seller if it was bred in captivity and have them show you proof.
