CITES
CITES CoP16On Monday, Committee I discussed shark and manta ray proposals, which were agreed to by vote, and a sawfish proposal, accepted by consensus.

Committee II addressed: amendment of the Appendices; compliance and enforcement issues; leopard quotas; Tibetan antelope; hawksbill turtle; freshwater turtles and tortoises; and sturgeon and paddlefish. On Tibetan antelope, the Secretariat stated that since the document had been prepared, several large seizures of products made from the wool of the Tibetan antelope (shahtoosh) had been reported, indicating “significant” illegal trade.

A report on enforcement, welcomed by many parties, highlighted illegal trade in pangolins. Working Groups on rhino, annotations, conflicts of interest and musical instruments met during lunch.
