Tighter Protection for Endangered Species

Published tisdag 12 september 2006 kl 11.53

Swedish Radio News reports that tougher punishments for crimes involving endangered plants and animals will be introduced here at the beginning of the year.

Going beyond stopping the trade in endangered species, the new legislation will also make it illegal to damage eggs and nests, to dig up protected plants or damage the places where they grow.

The Swedish police say there can be problems enforcing the law, as it’s hard to be aware of all 20,000 endangered species, and difficult to know if one has been included in the ingredients in some product.
