MANILA — The Twelfth Session of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS COP12) will be held on 23-28 October 2017 in Manila, the Philippines, for the first time that the COP will ever have been held in Asia. At this gathering, signatories to the Convention will stress the importance of migratory animals as essential parts of ecosystems through for example pollination and address the various threats that are harming them.
The slogan for the Conference is “Their Future is Our Future – Sustainable Development for Wildlife & People”. Aptly in line with the Sustainable Development Goals, the event underlies the fact that global efforts are critical to preserve the planet’s wildlife.
