Asian big cats
Directed to Parties
Every consumer and range State Party that seizes a significant illegal shipment of Asian big cat parts or derivatives, and any Party that intercepts such a shipment should communicate the details of such actions to each country of origin, export or re-export that can be determined and, in every case, to the Secretariat. Any country so advised, should conduct an appropriate investigation and report the result to the State of seizure and to the Secretariat.
Each range State Party should consider ways in which local communities might be encouraged to play a part in, and benefit from, the conservation of Asian big cats and their habitats, for example through eco-tourism. Each range State should prepare a report on its approach to this matter for the 49th meeting of the Standing Committee, so that concepts and initiatives can be shared among relevant Parties.
Directed to the Standing Committee
The Standing Committee shall continue to review the progress in range and consumer States that were earlier subject to CITES Technical and Political Tiger Missions to ensure that recommendations made by the Missions continue to be implemented.
The Standing Committee shall report at the 13th meeting of the Conference of the Parties upon the progress made by the range and consumer States of Asian big cat species. The report may contain recommendations regarding appropriate measures where no progress has been made.
