Abstract

In April 1991, the Nature Conservancy Council for England (English Nature), Countryside Council for Wales and Scottish Natural Heritage acting together through the Joint Nature Conservation Committee were appointed by the Secretary of State for the Environment as the United Kingdom's Scientific Authority for Animals under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES). CITES regulates international trade in wild animals, plants and products derived from them, helping to ensure their conservation on a global scale.

The intention of this publication is to provide a list of the species and subspecies of herpetofauna included in the CITES Appendices, together with their conservation status category in the 2004 IUCN Red List of threatened species (IUCN 2004) and the appropriate Annex in EC Regulation 338/97 (and subsequent updates).

This revised edition incorporates additions and amendments to the CITES appendices up to and including those made at the 13th Conference of the Parties in Thailand in October 2004 (effective from 12 January 2005) and those outlined in CITES Notification 2004/074 and Notification 2005/029. The most recent EC Regulation to amend the Annexes is 1332/2005, effective from 12 August 2005.
