Question for written answer E-009559-14
to the Commission
Rule 130
Marc Tarabella (S&D)

 Subject:  Wildlife trafficking
 Answer in writing 

Over the last three years, 100 000 elephants have been killed by poachers, even though a recent report from the NGO WWF, entitled ‘Living Planet 2014’, laments the disappearance of half of the wildlife population in just 40 years.

In January 2014, the European Parliament voted by a very large majority in favour of a resolution calling upon the Commission to introduce a European action plan in the fight against wildlife trafficking.

Since then, the Commission has carried out a fruitful public consultation on the subject. But it is crucial that the new Commission keeps this issue well up on its political agenda.

What initiatives does the new Commission propose taking in order to advance the formulation of the action plan requested by the European Parliament?
