The banner times at the CITES Meeting continue. No protection for sharks either. Earlier in the week, delegates declined to protect several key species of coral. And, of course, let’s not forget last week´s debacle with the bluefin tuna and the polar bear. At this rate, we´ll be lucky if they don´t start affirmatively unprotecting things. Oh wait, they´re considering that with the elephant (read Kenya´s opposition paper here).
