One often means well when one gives a loved one a gift. But beware, as many souvenirs are made out of wild protected species such as coral, ivory and turtle scales and it is illegal to trade them. It might not seem very serious but this is the third largest form of international trafficking after drugs and software. And it is a real threat to biodiversity. So remember the ecotourism motto: “Take nothing but pictures. Leave nothing but footprints”
