About the Lacey Act
Moreover, the 2008 amendments to the Lacey Act served as an example for various other nations in the world to pass similar legislation including the European Union and Australia (US, n.d.).
However, due to the fact that the Lacey Act is a fairly new act (especially the amendments of 2008), the Lacey Act must be enforced to be properly effective. The EIA is currently working towards full implementation of the Lacey Act to improve the effectiveness of the act. To further improve the effectiveness of this act, awareness should be raised regarding the Lacey Act among various logging and wildlife businesses. Awareness may be raised using public service announcement videos/commercials, fliers, and the internet (US, n.d.).
