The laws regarding the ownership/sale of animal parts are often unclear and are, at best, extremely confusing. Unfortunately even well intentioned infractions can land you with HUGE fines and criminal charges!
These laws were created to ensure a sustainable industry and to protect the lives of animals so please give them the respect they deserve. This is a digital age and any wildlife crime you commit leaves a papertrail. #CollectResponsibly
The exact laws vary by nation/state/province, but for Canadian collectors here are a few handy pointers:
-IT IS A CRIME to buy and sell North American migratory and predatory birds! Even personal ownership of these parts requires permits (if they even allow that). There are several dealers, especially in Quebec, who ignore these rules. Both the buyer and seller can face criminal charges/fines! Don’t believe any lies told to make a quick buck - there is a continental treaty.
-IT IS A CRIME in Ontario to buy and sell parts of any game animal that exists in our province. It doesn’t matter if the deer taxidermy (or any other antler/animal part) was shot in Quebec, Nova Scotia, etc - if the species is found in Ontario it is illegal. Antique stores are often ignorant or turn a blind eye, but these laws have been proven to reduce the rates of poaching.
-IT IS A CRIME to export any British Columbia wildlife without a provincial export permit! These permits can easily take a month to secure and can cost over $50. If BC vendors are shipping you local animal parts and you don’t receive a copy of the permit, you have likely just received smuggled (if not poached) goods. The penalties are severe. Demand an export permit!
-IT IS A CRIME to transport marine mammal parts between provinces without applying for a license. Even Inuit hunted items require specific documentation to be legally exported out of the north.
-IT CAN BE A CRIME to import or export animal parts across our national boundaries. All Canadian wildlife require permits and many of the world’s species fall under various restrictions/the CITES convention. Poaching is fueled primarily by buyers who turn a blind eye. Endangered/threatened species can die by your hands.

In case you haven’t met it yet, this is our juvenile bald eagle taxidermy mount! This animal was accidentally caught in a poorly laid snare trap and, despite the best veterinary care, passed of its injuries.
It was donated to our permanent teaching collection by the @torontowildlifecentre and can be viewed, free of charge, at the Prehistoria Natural History Centre in Toronto.
It is a crime to buy and sell any North American migratory and predatory birds! Some sellers will lie about the laws to make a quick buck but both the buyer and seller can face serious fines and criminal charges! In the US even ownership of migratory and predatory bird parts is almost entirely prohibited.

Not to toot our own horn, but our pocket-sized beauties make the best (and easiest!) stocking stuffers for everyone on your gift list. Below, we list a few suggestions for filling your chimney-hung grab bags with care. KELLEY HOFFMAN
TIP #1 Keep your eye out for gifts that can be easily broken apart. These save time and brainpower—and they’re easy on the wallet, too. While any set can be divided up, we highly suggest kits with individually wrapped items for extra gifting finesse.

TIP #4 The end of December might mean the end of gift giving, but it doesn’t mean the end of holiday parties. Gift your girl who plans to get gussied up for New Year’s Eve.
TIP #5 Not quite sure of your giftee’s taste? Look for two-in-one gifts—they at least give you a second chance for nailing her style. And after all, when it comes to stocking stuffers, the more the merrier!
