PI

My wife is in the Philippines. I'm tempted to have her try and bring some corals back. Does anyone have any experience with this? Is it legal?

I think your right if your talking about endangered species, which some corals may be, especially in the PI, where fishermen use dynamite to increase the catch.. Ive decided against trying to bring any back mostly because I'm not sure they would survive the trip. I never even considered it, until someone who sells coral asked if my wife was going to bring any back.
