This international agreement aims to ensure that international trade in specimens of wild animals and plants does not threaten their survival. The convention provides a framework under which each member state adopts its own domestic implementing legislation. The three appendices, linked from the convention text site, list the species afforded protection by the convention. In addition, the site links to notes about amending agreements.
