SOC: Mana Pools, Sapi and Chewore Reserves (Zimbabwe)

Mana Pools, Sapi and Chewore Reserves (Zimbabwe)

The Committee regretted that with the relocation of the ten remaining rhinos from this Park to an intensive protection zone, this World Heritage site has lost one of its "flagship" species. The Committee urged the Centre that in order to protect populations of similar species in other World Heritage sites, it should expand its cooperation with IUCN's Species survival Commission and the Secretariat of the Convention on International Trade on Endangered species (CITES).
