What does CITES stand for?

CITES stands for Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species. CITES is a multilateral treaty to protect endangered plants and animals. It was drafted as a result of a resolution adopted in 1963 at a meeting of members of the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

The aim of CITES is to make sure that international trade in specimens of wild animals and plants do not threaten the survival of the species and it grants protection to more than 35000 species of animals and plants.
