CITES - stand by your Vote!

On Monday, March 11, 2013, CITES Committee I approved protections for five species of shark and two species of manta ray. 
The results of Committee I will head to plenary and will be approved in about 48 hours.
There is a chance that opposing countries will move to reopen the vote and possibly overturn these protections.

Details about what to do here.
And you may also want to congratulate and thank the delegates for what they've done so far!

Also, good piece by the IUCN here!
