During the five day conference,
proposals to be considered include measures to protect whales and other
cetaceans from ocean noise, together with discussions about tigers, elephants,
turtles, sharks, birds and gorillas.
The International Fund for
Animal Welfare (IFAW) believes habitat protection is essential for the survival
of many species and acknowledges the strength of CMS's work in bringing
countries together to create agreements and cross border alliances which
actively protect wildlife and habitats.
