A guide to help Caribbean travelers avoid buying illegal souvenirs made from endangered species has been produced by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Many wildlife products sold overseas cannot be brought into the United States or require permits to do so. In the Caribbean, these include sea turtle products, certain types of coral, spotted cat furs and live birds.

According to the report, products to avoid in the Caribbean include:

- all sea turtle products, including the shells and products made from the skins
- all spotted cat skin products
- certain leather products, including some made from caiman, crocodiles, lizards and snakes
- most live birds, including many parrots, macaws, cockatoos and finches
- some wild bird feathers, mounted birds, skins and some skin products
- live monkeys
- some corals and coral products
- certain orchids, cacti and cycads
