International trade, lawful and illegal, in wildlife and plants is at the level of billions of dollars per year. Illegal trade in such items as bear gallbladders, elephant ivory tusk and other products is a significant issue around the world. CITES has exercised control over the fur of big cats such as leopards, the skins of crocodiles, trade in live birds such as the Hyacinth Macaw, whales and primates.
CITES does not provide protection for the habitat of species or how a species is used within a country, it only controls international movement of the species.
A permit will not be given if the removal of the animal would be detrimental to the species in the wild, that is, if the removal would impose additional risk on the survival of the species. If a species is in danger of extinction then the treaty will impose a ban on the commercial trade of the listed species.
These species are listed on Appendix I of the treaty may countries consider this the endangered species list. If a species might have population level concerns then the species is listed on Appendix II, where commercial trade is allowed.
Examples of Appendix II species include: North American black bear, the golden eagle, and many orchid species.
Many countries would consider this a list of threatened species. Representatives of countries that have signed the treaty meet every two or so years in order to carry out their responsibilities under the treaty.
