The CITES Animals Committee side event of the International Alliance against Health Risk in Wildlife Trade

Wildlife Product

During this year’s meeting of the CITES Animals Committee, the Alliance and its work was showcased at a side event. This was made possible by the support of many of our amazing members, including Humane Society International, IUCN, WWF, Global Initiative to End Wildlife Crime, Pan African Sanctuary Alliance (PASA), International Council for Game and Wildlife Conservation (CIC) and Born Free Foundation. The event was chaired by Sue Liebermann from the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), who introduced the Alliance to around 80 external participants who attended the side event, which allowed the Alliance to showcase its achievements on an international stage.  

The session successfully introduced the Alliance to many new stakeholders. From structural matters and our vision and mission to the many funded projects and initiatives on the ground, the presentation summarised all the remarkable developments of the Alliance over the past two years, with many participants expressing their appreciation for being introduced to the Alliance. We look forward to supporting more events of this kind and encourage you to spread the word so that our community can continue to grow and develop internationally. Special thanks to Sue Liebermann for leading this very successful side event!
