Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES)

Note that international trade in wild specimens of Appendix I species for commercial purposes is prohibited. However, under certain conditions, specimens produced by captive breeding operations registered by CITES can be traded for commercial purposes.

Applications for registration of a captive breeding operation will be approved only if sufficient details are provided.

Registration is for captive breeding operations producing animals listed in Appendix I of CITES for commercial purposes.
