Conservation International reminds us of an easy way to protect wildlife.
When traveling, avoid purchasing wild animal products including ivory, meat, skins and traditional medicines. Buy local handicrafts instead. Ask questions before you buy souvenirs to make sure your purchases are legally sourced. When in doubt, do not buy anything that contains wildlife parts.
