such high profile species as the African elephant, polar bear, Southern
white rhino, hammerhead sharks and manta rays. The Parties also will be
considering eleven proposals for adopting trade controls or increased
protection for Asian and American turtle species and, a proposal to
increase protection for the West African manatee.
International trade controls for a record 136 tree species
targeted for the timber trade are also to be considered.
Downlisting/delisting proposals will be considered for three
crocodile populations, Ecuador's Vicuña

because they are now believed to be extinct.
