Debate and celebration from CITES: A Storify of #CITES4sharks tweets


The 16th Conference of the Parties of CITES (Convention on International Trade of Endangered Species has been truly historic in terms of shark and ray protections. I’ve created a Storify featuring some highlights of the ongoing twitter conversation, organized by proposal. The tweets include links to fact sheets and scientific research about the species up for protections, as well as original content such as summaries of arguments made by delegates for and against CITES protections. Tweets come from experts in attendance at CITES, and those following along from around the world (including me). For those of you who didn’t follow along live, or if you did and want to relive the experience, check it out! Warning- there are a LOT of tweets.

    Thanks a lot for compiling these tweets, David! It was exciting seeing the stream of tweets from you as well as those tweeting from accounts like @CITES4sharks, @SharkDefenders, @ProjectAWARE, @USFWSHQ, @SharkAdvocates, @PewEnvironment, and @IUCNShark, among others. The drama and tension of the sessions deserved to be captured.
