1996 Endangered Species
UN Offices in New York
 
Endangered Species: The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) was signed in Washington, D.C., on March 3, 1973, and entered into force on July 1, 1975. The convention’s aim is to ensure that international trade does not threaten the survival of wild animals and plants. CITES founders recognized that after destruction of habitat, unrestricted exploitation is the second major threat to the survival of many species. The convention’s representatives meet every two years to discuss the latest scientific information and revise protected species lists accordingly.
 
CITES has enjoyed some success, and the United Nations Postal Administration (UNPA) has played a role in the organization’s strategy. The peregrine falcon, the grey wolf, and the American bald eagle have made partial recoveries after being featured on United Nations stamps.
