Decisions at CITES COP13 involved such
high profile species as the African elephant, the minke whale, Asian
freshwater turtles, great white shark, the humphead wrasse and ramin.
Proposals were approved to initiate
trade in ivory ekipas (Namibia), elephant leather (South Africa), and
the bald eagle.
Increased trade controls for other
species were approved. These included, among others, the Irrawaddy
dolphin (captured for display), yellow-crested cockatoo (captured for
pets), five species of Asian freshwater turtles (collected for pets,
food and medicinal purposes), great white shark, humphead wrasse,
ramin, and agarwood.
