CITES learning modules
BGCI has created a suite of learning modules on the Convention of International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES), essential for those working in botanic gardens with CITES listed species. The modules below will explain what CITES is, explain a CITES listing and provide infomation on how CITES can be implememented in your institution. After every module there is a quick quiz to test your knowledge.
