About the event

The  Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), also known as the Washington Species Protection Convention in German (WA) was created in 1973 as a result of the significant fall of numerous species as a result of poaching and trafficking. CITES became international law in 1975. The agreement's main instruments are import and export permission requirements. The greater the trade restrictions, the more endangered the species. 

This four-hour course is designed to help you identify endangered species and to obtain the necessary licences prior to importing and exporting.
