karmavision.tv What Are You Really Bringing Back With You From Vacation? Each year millions of tourists travel to exotic locations to encounter wildlife, only to unwittingly bring home souvenirs made from endangered species. Take the Think Twice pledge: Don’t buy wildlife souvenirs. Have you ever thought about what you â�� and the millions of other tourists who travel abroad every year â�� are really bringing back with you from your holiday? Each year, customs officers seize thousands of wildlife items from travelers, many of them tourist souvenirs made from endangered or threatened species. Examples include elephant ivory carvings and jewelry, tortoise and turtle shell accessories, big cat skins, reptile skin handbags, belts and shoes, porcupine quill coasters and lampshades, coral and shells, and many more. Sadly, many tourists buying souvenirs made from wildlife have no idea that they have done anything wrong, often because these items are sold openly in resorts, airports, shops and markets â�� masking the bloody truth behind the wildlife trinkets being sold.
