Summary
Abstract: CMS has a unique role to play in focusing attention on and addressing the conservation needs of the 107 endangered species presently listed in Appendix I - including, among others, the Siberian crane, White-tailed eagle, Hawksbill turtle, Mediterranean monk seal and Dama gazelle.

Appendix II lists migratory species that require or would benefit significantly from international co-operative Agreements under CMS. These may range from legally-binding treaties to less formal memoranda of understanding. The more formal Agreements should provide for co-ordinated species conservation and management plans; conservation and restoration of habitat; control of factors impeding migration; co-operative research and monitoring; and public education and exchange of information among Parties.
