Species+: a new tool to assist with CITES and CMS implementation
Species+ is a new online resource providing information on globally protected species. It includes all species covered by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) and the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS), as well as those included in the EU Wildlife Trade Regulations.
Using Species+, governments can rapidly identify the species occurring within their borders that are covered by these Conventions and CITES authorities can download up-to-date information about CITES trade suspensions and quotas.
Further enhancements to Species+, including incorporating the CITES Trade Database, links to the CMS species database and links to national systems, are planned in future.
The Biodiversity Indicators Partnership (BIP) is proud to announce the launch of its e-learning module, ‘Developing Biodiversity Indicators’. This module is designed as a resource for practitioners across the world, working to develop and use biodiversity indicators. It builds on the BIP’s publication ‘Guidance for National Biodiversity Indicator Development and Use’.
