Conservation partnership seeks to improve python trade

Sustainability and animal welfare at the heart of new collaboration

November 2013: A ‘Python Conservation Partnership', a collaboration between luxury retail group Kering, the International Trade Centre (ITC) and the IUCN Species Survival Commission (SSC) Boa & Python Specialist Group, has been launched with the aim of contributing to the improved sustainability of the python trade and helping facilitate industry-wide change.

The programme of research over the next three years will focus on the analysis and recommendations around sustainability, transparency, animal welfare and local livelihoods for the python trade. The data and findings will contribute to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) process, which supports a framework for countries to manage their trade in endangered species such that it contributes to local livelihoods and does not threaten the survival of species in the wild.
