CITES
CITES CoP16In the morning, Committee II reconvened to complete outstanding agenda items, including, among others, great apes, Asian big cats and budget. The Plenary met shortly after and proceeded to adopt reports and decisions from Committee I and II.

The CoP adopted listing proposals on: Abruzzo chamois, New Zealand green geckos, Mangshan pit-viper, Roti Island snake-necked turtle; spotted turtle; Blanding’s turtle, diamondback terrapin, freshwater box turtles, big-headed turtles, Burmese star tortoise and softshell turtles, among others.

Thailand, supported by Ecuador and Cambodia, requested reopening the proposal on the Siamese crocodile. The motion to re-open the discussion was carried, with 48 in favor, 74 against and 16 abstentions, reaching the 1/3 majority needed. After discussion, the CoP voted on the proposal, which was rejected, with 57 in favor, 70 against and 11 abstentions.
