Twenty-fifth Meeting of the Animals Committee (AC 25) of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES)

18-22 July 2011 | Geneva, Switzerland

Highlights for Thursday, 21 July 2011
CITESOn Thursday, AC 25 continued its discussions, convening in working groups during the morning and re-convening in plenary in the afternoon. In the morning, the RST working group finalized its selection of candidate species for the RST and agreed draft recommendations on species at other stages of the review process. The other working groups successfully completed their deliberations and finalized draft recommendations for consideration by plenary on, inter alia, snakes, turtles and tortoises, sharks, and the periodic review.

In the afternoon’s plenary, the Committee considered sea cucumbers and established an intersessional working group to evaluate the outcomes of the FAO workshop on Sustainable Use and Management of Sea Cucumbers conducted in 2007. On corals, the Committee established an intersessional working group to update the list of coral taxa where identification at the genus level is acceptable under CITES. AC 25 also dealt with a number of other agenda items, including: a report on progress in establishing the advisory working group on evaluation of the RST; progress on the CITES Wiki Identification Manual; production systems, including a draft guide for appropriate use of source codes; and evaluation of the purpose and content of regional reports. The Committee will meet on Friday in plenary to conclude its work.
