Next 11 November in Brussels a new event organised by two MEPs, Pavel Poc and Benedek Jávor, and co-hosted by the Group and the Born Free Foundation. 

Invitation with the necessary info below.

Dear friends,

Together with my colleague Benedek Jávor I would like to invite you to a wildlife crime event on CITES enforcement.

DATE: 11 November 2015, 13:00 - 15:00

LOCATION: JAN 4Q2, European Parliament, Brussels

The event is co-hosted by the MEPs for Wildlife Group and Born Free Foundation.

Improving national and cross-border enforcement will be one of the key objectives of the EU Action Plan against wildlife trafficking that seeks to combat the illegal trade in wildlife; threatening so many iconic species. This event will bring together the key stakeholders and decision-makers to ensure good practices are recognised and necessary actions are realised.

Come and join the discussion with:

Representative of the Global Programme for Combatting Wildlife and Forest Crime - United Nation Office on Drugs and Crime
Specialist on Environmental Crime - Europol
CITES Management Authorities - Member States
Experts of an Independent Charitable Foundation - Wildlife Justice Commission
Representative of DG Environment and DG Home - European Commission

 The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), signed in 1973, aims to ensure that international trade in specimens of wild animals and plants does not threaten their survival.
The European Union became a full member of CITES in July 2015 and it’s the first regional economic integration organization to do so.
