All Shark Proposals Pass Committee I
Posted by Shark Defenders
The proposals to protect Waqi Whitetip, Shark Stanley, and Pierre le Porbeagle have been approved by CITES Committee I. There is a chance the votes will be overturned in plenary, but it is much easier to approve there after they have been approved in committee. This is an excellent day in shark conservation, a complete turnaround of 2010. Congrats to everyone involved and thank you for your continued support. We're discussing the manta proposals now and we've got our fingers crossed for another positive outcome.
