CITES Illegal Trade Database

The CITES Illegal Trade Database contains data on individual wildlife seizures at the global level, as reported by CITES Parties through the annual illegal trade reports (AITR) since 2016. The AITR is an annual data collection that gathers information on individual wildlife seizure events, including the amounts seized, trafficking routes, taxon information, and mode of transport, amongst many other characteristics, for each reported event.

Database is available exclusively to governmental representatives of CITES Parties, including national CITES Management Authorities, as well as International Consortium on Combating Wildlife Crime (ICCWC) partner agencies, allowing for the dissemination of reported information in a restricted and secure environment.
