Guernsey's Commerce and Employment Department is proposing tougher control over the trade of endangered species.
The legislation would give Bailiwick customs officers the power to seize specimens if they believe they have been imported or exported illegally.
The proposals will be considered in the February States Meeting.
If the States agree it would bring Guernsey in line with international legislation.
