Canada Rejects International Agreement on Sharks
Posted by Shark Defenders
Canada has taken reservations on the new shark and manta ray listings at the Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES). According to the CITES Secretariat, Canada "entered a reservation with respect to all amendments to Appendices I and II of the the Convention adopted at CoP16, owing to the necessity to complete its domestic legal requirements for the entry into force of these amendments."
