Pangolins and the Criteria for Listing in CITES Appendix I

CITES Pangolin Fact Sheet

The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Flora and Fauna (CITES) seeks to ensure that international trade in wild animals and plants does not threaten their survival. All eight species in the pangolin family are currently listed in Appendix II of CITES. This listing provides a modest level of protection, requiring exporting countries to ensure that any traded pangolin specimens have been legally obtained and that their export will not be detrimental to the species’ survival.
