The aim of the Agreement is to establish a framework for partnership and cooperation; uniting efforts in the area of Biodiversity conservation in general to protect the endangered species of animals and birds, in regards to animal welfare.

  3. Combat the illegal trade in endangered animals and birds;
  4. Develop human resource capacity through the organization of training courses in relevant areas,
  5. Raise awareness and motivation in the field of conservation of animals and birds, and their natural habitats;
  6. Exchange information and expertise in these areas.
