Over the past 6 years, Governments, IGOs, NGOs, and the Secretariat have worked to develop tools to assist interested Parties to properly implement the listings of sharks and rays on Appendix II of CITES. Below is a collection of background materials, tools, and resources that can inform and assist those looking to learn more about sharks and rays in CITES or implement both the currently listed and proposed listings at home.
