The Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) will be held from March 3 till March 14 in Bangkok. PEW, an international NGO, said 143 species of sharks are facing extinction unless there is a control on the shark-fin trade. It is calling to CITES country members to put sharks on the controlled trade list. REUTERS/Chaiwat Subprasom
