Description

CITES (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) is an international agreement between governments. Its aim is to ensure that international trade in specimens of wild animals and plants does not threaten their survival. CITES was drafted as a result of a resolution adopted in 1963 at a meeting of members of IUCN (The World Conservation Union). CITES is an international agreement to which States (countries) adhere voluntarily. This website includes a Checklist of CITES Species that allows the exploration of more than 35,000 species of animals and plants and their degree of protection.
