CITES CoP17 in South Africa

Excerpt from our recommendations for CITES CoP17 applications in South Africa
Proposal 17.38 from Madagascar
Dyscophus guineti, D.insularis
Inclusion in Appendix II

Both species listed can currently be traded legally as they are not protected by CITES. The trade in these magnificent frogs is constantly increasing and wild populations are becoming increasingly weak. Both species meet all criteria for inclusion in Appendix II. Both species can and are already bred. If proposal 17.37 were to be accepted, the entire genus would then be in Appendix II. DCSP is certain that inclusion of all 3 species in Appendix II will massively increase offspring populations and none of these species will have to be taken from the wild. Please support this application massively.
DCSP Recommendation: Agree
