Shark species win protection despite Costa Rica

Tuesday, October 4, 2016


The silky shark and bigeye thresher shark will be under increased protection following an international vote Monday to include the species in Appendix II of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora, or CITES.

Species listed in Appendix II are to be closely monitored to ensure that trade does not cause the species to become threatened with extinction.
