Hello Simias,

I don't think anyone here is saying that CITES I status for the Burmese Star will not help the species overall, they are merely pointing out to you that you do understand what it means for the species in the US because your first post contains a misconception:

"in case anyone hasn't heard, Burmese Stars have just been approved for listing as CITES I, and as of sometime this summer of fall, no more purchase or shipping interstate without a federal permit."

CITES status of any species has no bearing on whether a CBW Permit is required to buy and sell the species in the US. Only the listing of the animal on the US Endangered Species Act list makes the CBW Permit a requisite for interstate sales in this country.
