Hippos, sharks taking shelter at the UN Wildlife Conference – Oil City Derrick | Team Cansler

Hippos poached for their skin and teeth, sharks targeted for the fin trade and a tiny frog with translucent skin are among hundreds of species to be better protected at a United Nations wildlife conference that opens on Monday could.

The 184-nation Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), meeting in Panama over the next two weeks, will consider tightening trade rules for some 600 potentially endangered plants and animals. Nine other types are recommended for less restrictive international trade regulations.
