Rule to protect endangered species

posted on 05/04/2002: 2062 views


The Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries and the Federal Environmental Agency (FEA), are considering a local rule to protect endangered species in support of a Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) agreement, to which the UAE is a signatory. The rule will specify those endangered species that can be traded, and penalties to be imposed against offenders. The UAE became a member of CITES in 1974.Since then, the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries has been authorised to implement the convention's provisions. During a meeting on March 12, the ministry and the FEA approved the UAE's permanent CITES committee that will handle matters pertaining to endangered species. (The Gulf News)
