The Illegally Traded Elephant In The Room: Species Terrorism & Combating Illegal Wildlife Trade, Áine Dillon Dec 2021

The Illegally Traded Elephant In The Room: Species Terrorism & Combating Illegal Wildlife Trade, Áine Dillon

can be beneficial because each illegally traded species

requires a different response, and countries with limited resources

can also participate. However, the lack of a unified response

hinders the global fight against the illegal wildlife trade.

While traditional methods to combat crime, such as passing

An International Sos (Save Our Sharks): How The International Legal Framework Should Be Used To Save Our Sharks, Crystal Green

Pace International Law Review

The purpose of this Article is to shed light on the plight on sharks in international and domestic waters. An estimated 100 million sharks are killed every year. The cruel and wasteful practice of shark finning is responsible for a large portion of those killings.

On 31 August 2007, TRAFFIC and ANCORS* (The Australian National Centre for Ocean Resources and Security) convened a small group of experts to examine operational issues relating to the question of who should be responsible for issuing Introduction from the Sea (IFS) documentation under CITES for Appendix II species, and how and when this should be applied. The workshop considered the practicalities of whether documentation should be issued by the flag or port State (or some combination) and ran through a series of real examples to test the veracity of its findings.
