CITES: Hello Porbeagle Shark!

Lesley Rochat LIVE FROM CITES: Vote results for porbeable shark to be listed on Appendix II secret ballot so we won’t know what the different countries voted: For=86 Against=46 Abstentions=8 THE PROPOSAL IS ACCEPTED!!!

Many didn’t think we would be successful after the defeat of the hammerhead and the oceanic whitetip, myself included, but we are pleased that at least for the probeagle there is some hope.

Now the Spiny Dogish is being debated. This will conclude the proposals on sharks for CITES CoP15.

I will post results the minute they are available.
