Proposed rule: Notice of intent to amend CITES Appendix III.
To ensure that we are able to consider your comment on this proposed rulemaking action, you must send it by December 29, 2014.
50 CFR Part 23
We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), propose to include the common snapping turtle ( Chelydra serpentina ), Florida softshell turtle ( Apalone ferox ), smooth softshell turtle ( Apalone mutica ), and spiny softshell turtle ( Apalone spinifera ) in Appendix III of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES or Convention), including live and dead whole specimens, and all readily recognizable parts, products, and derivatives. Listing these four native U.S. freshwater turtle species (including their subspecies, except Apalone spinifera atra, which is already included in Appendix I of CITES) in Appendix III of CITES is necessary to allow us to adequately monitor international trade in these species; to determine whether exports are occurring legally, with respect to State and Federal law; and to determine whether further measures under CITES or other laws are required to conserve these species.
