Migratory Wildlife Network

Wild Migration Civil Society Dialogue
In November 2011 the Wild Migration (as the Migratory Wildlife Network) attended CMS CoP10 in Bergen Norway where, in partnership with the Friends of CMS, we hosted the first CMS Civil Society Dialogue session with over 35 NGOs. The session agreed that the Dialogue should continue and be used to build greater understanding and coordination of related work in the lead up to CMS CoP11.

In 2014, Wild Migration released A Natural Affiliation, after an extensive review of the CMS NGO community and it's engagement with CMS.

Migratory Wildlife Network Advisory Group
The Migratory Wildlife Network Advisory Group will be established in 2016, comprising of one (or more) NGO representatives from each of the 28 CMS agreements as well as the CBD Alliance (NGOs focusing on CBD), World Wetlands Network (NGOs focusing on Ramsar) and the Species Survival Network (NGOs focusing on CITES). This Advisory Group will seek to better coordinate the work of the NGO community about related work.

Communiqués from the Network Advisory Group will be circulated to Network Members in the regular Network Digests.
