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.
This is the US Fish & Wildlife Service's (USF&WS) official website for endangered species information. Website includes lists of US and foreign species, many factsheets for downloading, detailed listings of their services, grants, permits, laws, and news; with a search box for fast access to species information.
The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species™ provides taxonomic, conservation status and distribution information on plants, fungi and animals that have been globally evaluated using the IUCN Red List Categories and Criteria. This system is designed to determine the relative risk of extinction, and the main purpose of the IUCN Red List is to catalogue and highlight those plants and animals that are facing a higher risk of global extinction. This website has good search features, large photo gallery, listings of initiatives, news, and links to related resources.
From April 1, 2015, the UC San Diego Library has arranged for a two-year trial period of over 26,000 videos available through Kanopy. The videos come from leading producers such as the BBC, California Newsreel, Criterion Collection, First Run Features, Kino Lorber and PBS, with more content added each year. Many of the films are from independent and specialty producers, with a focus on documentary films. Use is limited to currently enrolled UCSD students, employees, and faculty, staff. Faculty may screen these films in the classroom and they may also be used across campus to non-paying audiences, such as organizations and clubs, training, and in residence life.

TRAFFIC, the wildlife trade monitoring network, is the leading non-governmental organization working globally on trade in wild animals and plants in the context of both biodiversity conservation and sustainable development. TRAFFIC was established in 1976 and its mission is to ensure that trade in wild plants and animals is not a threat to the conservation of nature. Their website contains information on wildlife trade, enforcement networks, publications, media reports, and a news archive.
The Zoological Record database provides references and abstracts for over 6,500 zoological journals, books, newsletters, selected dissertations, review annuals, & conference proceedings back to 1864. It covers the traditional areas of zoology more comprehensively than BIOSIS Previews (such as ecology, physiology, systematics & taxonomy, evolution, life history, behavior, conservation, nutrition, reproduction, morphology & zoogeography), but it excludes or covers selectively the more experimental & applied topics (such as biochemistry, economic biology, laboratory animal research, & immunology).
