BEWARE of wildlife laws
it’s always worth double checking to see if any other wildlife laws apply to your specimen. Even if your specimen is not CITES protected, it could be subject to other wildlife laws in place. Otters, for example are a European protected species (EPS) and is also fully protected under Schedule 5 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 and is an offence to be in possession of one (dead or alive).
It’s a lot of information to take on board! But hopefully this guide made things a little clearer for you. If you have any questions or queries, please get in touch and I will try my best to give you some answers.
