International Shipping Of Animal Products

ALL wildlife products require US Fish & Wildlife Service permits for INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENTS.

The term 'wildlife product' is applicable to all real animal bones, skulls, taxidermy, insects, live plants, insect candy or snack, seashells, or any animal in resin or jars.

These shipments may be sent using a freight broker for customs clearance and we estimate that the cost of shipping most wildlife products internationally will be at least $250. If the wildlife product is also listed on CITES (see below), an additional permit processing fee of $165 may also apply.

Some domestic animals such as cows, pigs and chickens, and a few other domestic animals are not considered wildlife, and do not require US Fish & Wildlife permits.

Shipping within the United States does not require Fish & Wildlife permits, but the sale or possession of certain animal products may be prohibited in some states or localities.

International Shipping Of Wildlife Products Protected Under The CITES Convention

What is CITES?

CITES is the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora. It is an international agreement that monitors and controls trade in some species.

Why do I need to know this?

Wildlife products that bear the CITES logo on our website, unless otherwise specified on the product page, may be exported outside of the US provided that CITES export permits have been obtained. These permits are issued from Washington, DC, and can take between 60 and 90 days to be processed. The permit and processing fees cost $165 per shipment (not per item), in addition to the cost of shipping.

You may obtain the CITES export permits and export this item yourself by contacting the US Fish & Wildlife Service:

Alternatively, Evolution can obtain the CITES export permits and ship this item for you.

Shipping within the United States does not require CITES permits, but the sale or possession of certain wildlife products may be prohibited in some states or localities.
