Legislative Purpose: The act forbids the domestic and international trafficking in protected fish, wildlife and plants. The Lacey Act is one of the earliest U.S. laws aimed at wildlife protection and conservation. The Lacey Act was originally enacted to supplement state laws for the protection of game and birds by prohibiting the transportation of wild animals or birds that were killed in violation of state or territorial law. To aid in enforcement, the act required that shipments of fish and wildlife moving in interstate or foreign commerce be accurately marked and labeled as to their contents. Violators are subject to both criminal and civil sanctions. The prohibitions apply broadly to all wild animals, whether dead or alive, and to any part, product, egg, or offspring, including captive-bred animals, and more narrowly to certain wild plants indigenous to the U.S.
