In the United Kingdom, $98,199 worth of corals were spoted in seized in air freight from Indonesia. They were heading to specialist shops across the UK. Meanwhile, the corals were transported to the London zoo where they could take care of the them. Brian Zimmerman which is the head keeper of the zoo had this to say: “It is disheartening to see so many protected species being smuggled into the UK. “These species are vulnerable to over-collecting which is why their trade has been banned in the EU.” The investigation is ongoing. We at reef builders discourage buying banned or protected corals if you see them at a local fish store.
