CMS is an international agreement to protect migrating animals that cross international boundaries. Protected animals are listed on either Appendix 1 or 2 of the convention. The CMS meets only every three years and at the recent meeting it was decided to give the giant manta ray, two raptors and two curlews the highest possible protection--inclusion in Appendix 1.
