What is CITES?

This brief You Tube video from John Scanlon, Secretary General of CITES explains what the Convention of International Trade of Endangered Species is. As pet shippers we frequently deal with CITES permits for birds, zoo animals, and even inspections of something as simple as the export of a guinea pig (which while not a CITES species still needs to be inspected by US Fish and Wildlife prior to export).
