Just a quick update from CMS CoP11 in Ecuador – both the proposal for reef mantas & the proposal for all mobula rays have received unanimous support from the CMS Parties!
What happens next? Just like CITES in 2013, the proposals will be considered a second (and final) time, in what’s known as a plenary session, which takes place on Sunday (9th November 2014). Here’s hoping the Parties will continue to show the same support that they have so far. We’ll keep you posted.
