a note[edit]

What are the provisions of this treaty? A list of signers and non-signers doesn't tell us much of anything. Ortolan88

International[edit]

As CITES is an international agreeemnt, it would be intersting to see a CITES artical on many different language wikis and fully incorporated in each wiki. Snowman 08:53, 31 October 2006 (UTC) The official CITES website at www.cites.org is in three language versions, English French and Spanish. So perhaps this can help.

Name of page[edit]

If the page name change to CITES has a consensus approval, then there is some work to be done on the double redirects to this page. Is there a bot to do this? Snowman 09:34, 2 November 2006 (UTC)

Use of this page[edit]

At first, I thought this page had a copyright violation in it, because it shares some of the wording with http://www.itto.or.jp/live/Live_Server/1637/E-C41-18.doc but apparently, that document copied this! It is dated October 11, and it shares some sections about the background of CITES with sections of this page that are dated earlier. LittleDantalk 20:40, 8 December 2006 (UTC)

Year founded[edit]

It was founded in 1963, not 1973. http://www.cites.org/eng/disc/what.shtml Iminrainbows (talk) 23:01, 29 April 2010 (UTC)

Symbol's flower[edit]

What is the flower on the symbol? An orchid perhaps? Axl ¤ [Talk] 11:23, 25 August 2012 (UTC)

Other kingdoms than Animalia and Plantae[edit]

As of writing the Wikipedia page says that the CITES list protects enangered plants and animals. However, does the treaty really and explicitly exclude other regna, such as Fungi? –Tommy Kronkvist (talk), 05:12, 11 December 2016 (UTC).

The initial clause of the initial sentence of the Preamble in the text of the Convention reads: "Recognizing that wild fauna and flora in their many beautiful and varied forms are an irreplaceable part of the natural systems of the earth which must be protected for this and the generations to come;" (see https://cites.org/eng/disc/text.php#texttop). Appendices I, II and III to the Convention are lists of species afforded different levels or types of protection from over-exploitation (see https://cites.org/eng/app/index.php). See also Kingdom (biology)#Summary, the lead paragraph of the Flora article, and the lead paragraph of the Wikipedia:Talk page guidelines project page.
