Artificial propagation program
The convention on international trade in Endangered species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES): The CITES is an international agreement between governments. Its aim is to ensure that international trade in specimens of wild animals and plants does not threaten their survival. Because the trade in wild animals and plants crosses borders between countries, the effort to regulate it requires international cooperation.
CITES was conceived in the spirit of such cooperation. Today it accords varying degrees of protection to more than 30,000 species of animals and plants, whether they are traded as live specimens, fur coats or dried herbs.
Special Conditions: This permit only authorises the export of specimens
- propagated under an artificial propagation program approved by the Department of the Environment, Water, Heritage and Arts;
- harvested or artificially propagated under a wildlife trade operation approved by the Department of the Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts; or
- harvested or artificially propagated under a wildlife trade management plan approved by the Department of the Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts.
