Potential CITES trade ban for rare salamander underscores wildlife e-commerce
excerpt from above:
Quote:
The Kaiser's spotted newt is emblematic of the availability of the internet as an additional way to sell products made from endangered wildlife. It is the first species to be up for protection mostly because of e-commerce sales.

The newt is sought as a pet by collectors and wildlife enthusiasts and numbers have declined by more than 80 percent in recent years.
Meanwhile, CITES governments will consider in the coming days whether to take a more proactive approach to regulating the online trade in endangered species...
