CITES - 40 Years of International Cooperation and National Action

CITES was the third global environmental agreement to be adopted in the early 1970's, signed in Washington DC, US on 3 March 1973 – and 3 March is now celebrated each year as UN World Wildlife Day. It was, however, the first such global agreement to enter into force on 1 July 1975, some six months earlier than the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands and the World Heritage Convention.
