"Most people do not know the laws much less follow them."

That's why I don't feel creating more laws is the answer.

"I guess the only real answer is to produce more material
letting people know why should you not release animals
into the wild rather than just saying because it's illegal."

That's not what I meant. The fact that it's illegal isn't reason enough not to release non-native animals, but as far as legislation is concerned, I think it's far enough. I don't see why banning the keeping of non-native wildlife is any better than banning the release of non-native wildlife.
