Can someone please help me?

     I am being blocked from sending to Estonia 36 skin samples taken  
from five specimens of Scorpaeniform fishes in the University of  
Alberta Zoology MUseum.  How do you go about bypassing the stupid  
antiterrorist shipping regulations  of alcohol specimens to Estonia?

The 36 skin samples are wrapped in muslim (cheesecloth) and dipped in  
ethanol to moisten the cheesecloth and then packed in a watertight  
screwtop vial.  Each set of vials were then placed in a waterproof  
plastic bag and sealed. Then the bag was placed in a second watertight  
plastic bag and sealed. then all five sets of bags were placed in a  
waterproof plastic bag and sealed. Then the bag was placed in a  
watertight styrofoam shipping container. There was less than 1 ml of  
ethanol in the entire container.  There was less ethanol in the  
container than in a box of chocolates. However, according to the  
University of Alberta shipper, the ethanol is considered a "DANGEROUS  
GOODS" and cannot be shipped.

     Can someone point me to an exemption for museums shipping  
alcohol specimens in the international shipping regulations?  Thank  
you for your attention to this matter.
