Thailand fails to get crocodiles delisted

CITES votes to keep Siamese and saltwater crocs under protection list

Thailand has failed to get major support from members of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) to downgrade the protection for Siamese and saltwater crocodiles.

These two crocodiles are included in the list of 600 species threatened with extinction, and international trade in them or their parts is prohibited under CITES Appendix I.
