September 2016 Newsletter – CITES CoP17


The 17th meeting of the Conference of the Parties to CITES (CoP17) – – will take place from 24th September to 5th October 2016 and it is being held in Johannesburg, South Africa.

To tie in with this, for this quarter’s newsletter we invited articles from projects that highlight their work relating to both the legal and illegal trade of wild animals. As a one-off, we not only invited articles from Darwin Initiative projects but also from projects funded under Darwin’s sister grant scheme – the Illegal Wildlife Trade Challenge Fund.
