|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.
