Access to UNEP-WCMC datasets is provided on the understanding that you read and consent to be bound by the Terms and Conditions set out in the policies below.
UNEP-WCMC maintains information on species of conservation importance, in particular those protected by multilateral environmental agreements.
The Checklist of CITES Species provides the official list of CITES-listed species (scientific names) and their associated scientific synonyms; common names in English, French and Spanish (where available) and the CITES Appendix in which they are currently listed. Information on historical Appendix listings, reservations and level of listing (e.g. if a whole family or order is listed) is also available through this website.
The CITES Trade Database contains all data on trade in CITES-listed species submitted annually to the CITES Secretariat by Contracting Parties.
The CITES Trade Data Dashboards are an interactive and dynamic way of viewing the trade data submitted annually to the CITES Secretariat by Contracting Parties, enabling searches by country or by taxonomic group.
