The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) was first signed in 1973 in order to protect certain species of wild fauna and flora against over-exploitation through commercial trade, a trade now worth billions of dollars a year. CITES first entered into force on July 1, 1975, and now more than 170 nations ("Parties") have signed and ratified the CITES treaty. More About CITES
