On April 10, Qingdao Customs seized 23 pieces of red coral products in inward mail, weighing 600 grams, which were against customs regulations.
Red coral, formed by the accumulation of coral insects, is restricted in entry and exit as one of China’s Class-Ⅰ protected wild animals. So any passenger who carries, posts or consigns the coral must show the Import/Export Permit issued by China’s Endangered Species Import/Export Administration to get through customs formalities.
The red coral decorations seized by Qingdao Customs.
Customs officers were showing the seized red coral decoration.
