The Geographical Podcast: the problem with CITES, the convention designed to protect endangered wildlife
28 Apr
2022
The April episode of The Geographical Podcast has landed!

This month we take an in-depth look at CITES, the international convention designed to protect wildlife by monitoring and regulating wildlife trade. 

In a long-read from the April issue of Geographical, journalist Roman Goergen speaks to experts and campaigners from both within and outside CITES to find out why the agreement is cracking under the pressure. He discovers a world of bitter disputes between countries and campaigners and a workforce dealing with an impossible workload. 

The long-read is read by Sophie Pavelle.
