« Shark and ray advocates push for CITES listings of 18 species »

Government officials from the Dominican Republic, Maldives, and Senegal, shark scientist and shark conservationists will be available to media to talk about 18 of the most vulnerable species of sharks and rays, which have been proposed for listing on Appendix II of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES).

These shark and ray species have experienced population declines of greater than 70 percent. In some areas, they have been driven to localized extinction as a result of inadequate management, lack of international trade controls, and poor enforcement of existing management measures.

CITES Parties will vote on the proposals at the 18th meeting of the Conference of the Parties (CoP18), which starts in Geneva on August 17 and continues through August 28.
