Notes:

The production of the Southeast Asia guide was funded by the United States Department of State, Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) as part of the “Out of the Box: Removing the Risk of Wildlife Smuggling from Malaysia’s International Mail Service” project, now in its third year. The goal of the project is to improve the interdiction of wildlife products trafficked through international mail in Malaysia.
