Nowadays the public is more sensitive to the trade in wildlife and issues of concern are regularly aired in natural history articles books and on television. Importers and retailers of natural products have come under increased scrutiny in the last few decades. The Conchological Society supports the concerns that are expressed about the shells which are used for decorative and handicraft purposes. Where local legislation permits shell collection only dead beach-collected shells or food refuse should be used for shellcraft.
