The United States and China are jointly proposing to bring some species of freshwater box turtles (in the family Geoemydidae) in the CITES trade control regime (Appendix II). Check out the proposal: http://ow.ly/hhVxI
Shown here is a black-breasted leaf turtle (Geoemyda spengleri) which is covered by the proposal.
