                                  Announcing

                                    CITES-L

    A LIST FOR DISCUSSION AND POSTINGS OF ISSUES RELATING TO THE TRADE IN
      WILDLIFE AND THE CONVENTION ON INTERNATIONAL TRADE IN ENDANGERED
                                SPECIES (CITES)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The list will provide a medium for discussions on wildlife trade and 
CITES related issues.  The World Conservation Monitoring Centre (WCMC), 
where the list will be maintained, has had over 12 years of experience 
in dealing with wildlife trade issues and maintains a database of all 
reported trade in CITES-listed species on behalf of the CITES Secretariat.
WCMC has regular contact with the CITES Secretariat in Geneva, which 
will also be a source of up-to-date information. The 9th Conference of 
the Parties of CITES will be held in November of this year in Fort 
Lauderdale, Florida, USA and we hope to post decisions and results of 
discussions as they take place.

If you are interested in joining the list then please read on for 
further instructions.
