Import of one hunting trophy of Ursus arctos isabellinus
Report no: Non-detriment finding
VKM is unable to determine whether the import of one hunting trophy of Ursus arctos isabellinus to Norway from Tajikistan may be detrimental to the survival of the subspecies 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.
