Our Work on Sustainable Trade of CITES Species

The trade of animal and plant species in North America is a multimillion-dollar business. However, illegal harvesting of wildlife threatens the survival of certain species, as well as, the livelihood of the communities that depend on them. Through our work we are helping promote legal and sustainable trade while supporting the commitments made under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora.
