CMS Membership Heading for Century
Cape Verde and Kazakhstan Increase Membership to 97

Welcome to Cape Verde!
Cape Verde, a group of islands off the West African Coast in the Atlantic Ocean, feature a stunning 965 kilometres of coastline with a land area of only a little over 4000 km2. The volcanic archipelago is exposed to repeated droughts, which is a challenge to the over 400,000 inhabitants as well as the rich biodiversity in the rugged terrain of the mountainous islands and in its coastal waters. Agriculture and ecosystems face threats as a result of soil erosion and deforestation.

Seven Appendix I species need urgent conservation action. These include four species of marine turtles, the Loggerhead Turtle (Caretta caretta), Green Turtle (Chelonia mydas), Hawksbill Turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata) and the Olive Ridley Turtle (Lepidochelys olivacea) that are covered by the Memorandum of Understanding concerning Conservation Measures for Marine Turtles of the Atlantic Coast of Africa, the Blue Whale (Balaenoptera musculus) and the Humpback Whale (Megaptera novaeangliae) . The Whale Shark (Rhincodon typus), which is designated for concerted action is listed on Appendix II of the Convention. In addition to marine species, Cape Verde is home to many migratory birds. The CMS Secretariat is looking forward to helping Cape Verde to preserve its migratory animals and their habitats once it accedes on 1 May 2006.

Kazakhstan to be the 3rd Central Asian Party to CMS
Kazakhstan, a landlocked state in Central Asia, features arid and semi-arid climate and extensive plains, high mountains and parts of two large bodies of water, the Aral Sea and the Caspian Sea. This variety of habitats provides for the needs of 18 species listed on Appendix I of CMS and more than 100 species on Appendix II. Among them are concerted action species such as the Ferruginous Duck (Aythya nyocra), the Snow Leopard (Uncia uncia), the Lesser White-fronted Goose (Anser erythropus), the Slender-billed Curlew (Numenius tenuirostris) and the Saiga Antelope (Saiga tatarica tatarica).

An innumerable variety of waterbirds occur in the Central Asian state. Kazakhstan is a Signatory to the Memorandum of Understanding concerning Conservation and Restoration of the Bukhara Deer and the Memorandum of Understanding concerning Conservation Measures for the Siberian Crane. As of 1 May, Kazakhstan will be a contracting Party to CMS and thus demonstrates its commitment to preserve the natural heritage of the country.
