Hi Folks,

Travel through cyberspace to observe the deliberations during an important environmental meeting, the Convention on International 
Trade in Endangered Species' (CITES) biennial Conference of the Parties (COP) to be held in Harare, Zimbabwe, June 8-20.  By 
bringing up the U.S. delegation's Internet address, you can get an inside look at the conservation work of the treaty's 136 member 
nations and get a feel for the behind-the-scenes negotiations so important to the protection of animals and plants around the world.  
Cover fast-breaking news stories, learn what's hot and what's not, meet the real movers and shakers, and compare your own opinions 
on issues and decisions with those of the U.S. delegates.

To access the U.S. delegation's Internet site, go to http://www.fws.gov/~r9dia/index.html for information about getting COP10 
coverage via U.S. CITES Online.  You can also take a look back at what went on at COP9, held in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, in 1994.  
The site will become active June 8.            

For further information, contact Mary Maruca at (703) 358-2195 or Patricia Fisher at (202) 208-5634 until June 4; after June 4, please 
contact Mitch Snow at (202) 208-5634.

Thanks.. ...al
