in the news

"This week is marked by a historic conservation milestone for sharks and rays globally.  At this year’s Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) Conference of the Parties meeting in Bangkok, countries agreed to increase protection for five commercially-exploited species of sharks and manta rays.  CITES member nations, referred to as “Parties”, voted in support of listing the oceanic whitetip shark, three species of hammerhead sharks (scalloped, smooth, and great), the porbeagle shark and manta rays in CITES Appendix II – an action that means increased protection, but still allows legal and sustainable trade."

WCSU receives new government documents every week, if not every day.  These documents cover a wide array of topics, and are available in a variety of formats.  Newly acquired titles from the GPO may be found below.  For additional information about these titles just click on the link.
