Export of osprey from Norway to Ireland
Report no: Non-detriment finding (NDF)
The export of a maximum of 12 osprey (Pandion haliaetus) nestlings from Norway to Ireland for reintroduction purposes is unlikely to be detrimental to the survival of the 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.
