|CITES: Wildlife Conservation and Fair Trade|
CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) is an international agreement between over 175 countries which regulates the trade of endangered animals and plants. CITES does not only apply to the trade of live animals and plants but also their parts and products thereof.
Reptiles like the Alligator mississippiensis (American Alligator), the python and lizards are examples of endangered species. In this context, for example goods made out of reptile leather, caviar, cosmetic products, herbal ingredients and scientific samples are considered products.
CITES aims to allow controlled international trade in endangered species while ensuring the conservation of wild animals and plants. Through these targeted regulations a ban on trade can be avoided, therefore, CITES does not block international trade. CITES classifies the protected species into three levels according to the degree of endangerment which determine their tradability.
