Operations that breed Appendix-I animal species
for commercial purposes
Directed to the Animals Committee
The Animals Committee shall continue to examine the complex issues related to the origin of founder breeding stock and the relationship between ex situ breeding operations and in situ conservation of the species and, in collaboration with the Plants Committee, the American Zoo and Aquarium Association, the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria and the World Association of Zoos and Aquariums, identify possible strategies and other mechanisms by which registered ex situ breeding operations may contribute to enhancing the recovery and/or conservation of the species within the countries of origin, and report its findings at the 13th meeting of the Conference of the Parties.
The Animals Committee shall study and evaluate the process for registering operations that breed Appendix-I animal species for commercial purposes and report at the 13th meeting of the Conference of the Parties. It shall:
a) describe and analyse the specific problems that limit the wider use of the registration procedure;
b) provide recommendations to resolve those problems; and
c) study and evaluate how commercial captive breeding of Appendix-I species and the process for registration of breeding operations contributes to conservation of Appendix-I species.
