Broad-snouted caimans - re-export from Norway to Denmark


Report no: Non detriment finding (NDF)

Published: 27.04.2023

Key message:

The re-export of six live broad-snouted caimans (Caiman latirostris) is not likely to be detrimental to the survival of this species in the wild.

Thus concludes the Norwegian Scientific Committee for Food and Environment (VKM).

The assignment was carried out on behalf of the Norwegian Environment Agency, which is the management authority for the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) in Norway.

VKM is the scientific authority for CITES in Norway and prepares NDF (non-detriment finding) reports in accordance with the methodology published by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and CITES.
