The Elephant Trade Information System, commonly known as ETIS, is the CITES-mandated tool that tracks illegal trade in elephant ivory and other elephant products.
Managed and operated by TRAFFIC on behalf of the CITES Parties, ETIS has been designed to establish trends in illicit elephant product trade and changes in trends over time, and to assess whether or not such trends are related to CITES decisions for elephant conservation. The objectives for ETIS are also common to the other CITES programme, Monitoring Illegal Killing of Elephants (MIKE), which tracks poaching of elephants in the wild through a site-based system encompassing Africa and Asia.
ETIS has remains an indispensable tool in informing global decisions affecting elephant conservationTom Milliken, TRAFFIC's Elephant and Rhino Programme leader and founder of ETIS
