Explanation:

The IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources) is an international organization, but it is not an organ of the United Nations. CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) is indeed an international agreement between governments.

The IUCN is involved in numerous field projects globally aimed at conserving and managing natural environments.

CITES is legally binding on the States that have joined it, but this Convention does not take the place of national laws.
