CITES
CITES CoP16On Friday, Committee I heard reports on the progress of working groups on queen conch and IPBES. It then resumed its consideration of amendments to the appendices, including, among others, proposals on turtles, crocodiles and amphibians.

Committee II considered rhinoceros, great apes and illegal trade in cheetahs. It suspended discussions on Asian big cats to address new amendments to the draft decisions.

Working groups continued their efforts throughout the day, meeting to deliberate on the budget, among other things.

On Saturday, participants will have the opportunity to explore Thailand through CITES-organized field trips.
