590 Exporting Wildlife and Protected Plants

591 Special Requirements for Wildlife and Certain Plant Exports

Exports of wildlife items and products may be subject to declaration, license, marking, and permit requirements enforced by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). Similar requirements also apply to plants protected as endangered or threatened under U.S. law or international treaty. Live wildlife and dead animals, with only a few exceptions, may not be exported via the U.S. Postal Service (see 138.1).
