Species conservation in international trade

The research carried out by the FSVO in the area of species conservation relates primarily to conservation in the implementation of the CITES species conservation convention, i.e. species conservation in international trade. The Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN) is responsible for research relating to the conservation of native animal and plant species.

The species conservation research carried out by the FSVO relates primarily to the following:

  • Development of a basis for supporting the implementation of the species conservation convention (CITES Identification Manuals);
  • Obtaining information that is important for decision-making processes at the Conference of Parties;
  • Projects relating to species of commercial or political relevance for Switzerland.
