summary CITES works by subjecting international trade in specimens of selected species to certain controls.
When species are transferred from Appendix II to I, it means that most of the species are endangered and need the full protection of Appendix I
Unsustainable trade, weak implementation of CITES requirements & escalating illegal trade contributes to transfers.
Species populations are reduced in the wild by: climate change, diseases, infrastructure development, and habitat loss.
