In October 2007 CITES
Secretariat Willem Wijnstekers issued a statement in response to
numerous requests calling for CITES to intervene in the trade of live
dolphins. Mr. Wijnstekers stated in his response that CITES had not been
presented with any evidence demonstrating that the required NDF’s were
inadequate for such exports.
Furthermore, he stated that CITES had not been furnished with evidence to show that such exports were having a detrimental impact on wild dolphin populations. He subsequently closed the communication with the following undertaking: “If the Secretariat receives any information to show there is such a justification, we will certainly act”
The purpose of this document is to tender such evidence to the Secretariat and formally request the enabling of several points of action with specific regard to the trade of live dolphin specimens from Japanese waters.
