Foreword by Kathryn S. Fuller, President, World Wildlife Fund
For more than two decades, the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Speices of Wild Fauna and Flora, known as CITES, has been one of the largest and most effective conservation agreements in the world. By regulating international commerce in certain species the treaty limits trade in certain species while allowing controlled trade in species that can withstand some level of exploitation. There are chapters on highly threatened species, such as elephants, rhinos, tigers, parrots, primates, and bears, and their status. In addition to this, and the explanation of how CITES operates, this comprehensive reference includes the full text of the CITES treaty, plus appendices, a list of Parties, as of March 1994, and a list of Reservations by parties as of October 1993.
