No Monkeying around at CITES as Parties Vote for full Protection for Barbary mac

IFAW welcomed the decision today by the 17th Conference of the Parties (CoP 17) of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) to give greater protection to Barbary macaques by transferring them from Appendix II to Appendix I – thus giving the species greater protection from international trade.

“This is a critical step in preventing a further decline in Barbary macaque populations,” says Rikkert Reijnen, Senior Project Lead, Wildlife Trade at IFAW (International Fund for Animal Welfare).

Pangolins win at CITES

Parties today at the 17th Conference of the Parties (CoP 17) of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) in Johannesburg decided that the most illegally traded mammal in the world urgently needs protection from further over-exploitation. All eight pangolin species are being transferred from Appendix II to Appendix I – thus prohibiting any international commercial trade with pangolin parts.

Как правило, в эти дни стихают ураганные ветры, терзавшие степь и ее обитателей весь апрель.
