Document (Summary, 144 KB) Susan A. Mainka. (May 1997). 82pp. ISBN 1 85850 1296 (ISBN 978 1 85850 129 1) This report examines the response to the resolution adopted by the Conference of the Parties to CITES in 1994. The resolution called upon Parties to take a variety of actions to help save the world's remaining tigers from extinction.

The response to the resolution was found to be incomplete, with few countries honouring their commitment to the actions agreed.

Still in Business: The Ivory Trade in Asia, Seven Years after the CITES  Ban

Document (summary, 100 KB) Edited by: Stephen V. Nash. (April 1997). 82pp. ISBN 1 85850 124 5 (ISBN 978 1 85850 124 6). This report provides a review of current Asian ivory trade, examining the recent information from China, Hong Kong, Japan, Macau, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand and Taiwan. The main volume of trade is no longer in intricate works of art, but in signature seals (known as hankos in Japanese) used to transact everyday business in some parts of Asia. The report shows that Asia's ivory industry is still in business, seven years after the international ban.

Managing Shark Fisheries: Opportunities for International Conservation

Document (scanned PDF, 6.7 MB) Michael L. Weber, Sonja V. Fordham. (March 1997). 61pp. ISBN 1 85850 115 6 (ISBN 978 1 85850 115 4). This report, a joint project of the Center for Marine Conservation and TRAFFIC International, regarding existing international agreements that may promote the conservation of sharks.

A comparison of the range of key species of sharks with the jurisdiction of existing fisheries management regimes reveals large gaps in some areas.
