Concerned CITES member states support transfer of Grey Parrots from Appendix II to Appendix I -By Dr. Nathaniel Annorbah

Postby Nathaniel Annorbah » Tue May 17, 2016 11:03 am

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.

PROTECT PARROTS – NO EXCEPTIONS

Share this action:

African grey parrots are disappearing, trafficked nearly out of existence in some areas of West and Central Africa. All to fuel the illegal pet trade.

Last year, the CITES international trade treaty gave parrots the strongest possible protections from trade, but one country, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, has taken a so-called "reservation", exempting itself from the CITES provisions leaving parrots vulnerable.

The U.S. delegation will be at the next CITES meeting in just a few weeks. Use the form below to ask them to take a strong stance on protecting parrots – stop illegal trade!
