Are there international rules on how zoos treat their animals?

    Although there are federal and state laws that stipulate how animals in zoos can be treated, international laws regarding the treatment of zoo animals are geared primarily toward regulating the transport of animals. The Convention on International Trade of Endangered Species of Wild Flora and Fauna (CITES) monitors and regulates the transport of about 5,000 endangered species. However, like all international laws, it is difficult to enforce such regulations as few bodies really have the power to offer incentives and punishments for breaking them.
