A number of concerned CITES member states have supported Gabon in proposing the transfer of the Grey and Timneh Parrots from Appendix II to I in accordance with Resolution Conf. 9.24 (Rev. CoP16), Annex 1 i.e. the criteria for amendment of Appendices I and II.
If this proposal is passed, it will result in the prohibition of all international trade in wild Grey Parrots. Recent research has revealed the collapse of wild populations in various parts of the species' ranges. The proposal will be voted on at the CITES Conference of Parties to be held in Johannesburg South Africa later this year.
Please find the full proposal attached for your information.
