This document will post tomorrow (4/26/22) in the Federal Register. This details the FWS agenda for the next Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) happening in November 2022. We will update this page with the final version (as the final will have relevant dates) and more information.

Species proposals that USFWS/United States will likely submit for consideration:


  1. *Short-tailed albatross (Phoebastria albatrus)—Transfer from Appendix I to Appendix II
  2. *Aleutian cackling goose (Branta hutchinsii leucopareia)—Transfer from Appendix I to Appendix II

3. *Puerto Rico boa (Epicrates inornatus)—Transfer from Appendix I to Appendix II

The list of species yet undecided is very long. The list starts at page 7 at the link.
