CITES
CITES CoP16In the morning, Committee I reviewed proposals for the transfer from Appendix I to Appendix II of the Abruzzo chamois and the vicuña, which were both accepted. The transfer of polar bears from Appendix II to Appendix I and an alternate proposal to annotate the current Appendix II listing were not accepted. Committee II discussed reports from the Secretariat and TRAFFIC on monitoring the illegal killing of elephants (MIKE) and the elephant trade information system (ETIS). Committee II suspended discussion on these two agenda items and formed working groups that are expected to report back on Friday, 8 March. Committee II then addressed the proposed new resolution concerning the African Elephant Action Plan and African Elephant Fund.

In the afternoon, Committee I considered more proposals to amend the appendices, including the proposal to uplist the West African manatee, which was accepted. Committee II continued discussions on elephants, including a decision-making mechanism and, among other things, revised and voted to accept resolutions and decisions on introduction from the sea
