CMS renovates its Web site
(posted to the Ramsar Forum, 23 September 1998)
Subject: CMS website renovated completely
The Secretariat of the Convention on Migratory Species (CMS) is pleased to announce the complete renovation of its website.
The site contains official documents and updated information on CMS activities and those of its related Agreements. These concern mainly the conservation of: - Bats in Europe - African-Eurasian migratory waterbirds - Small cetaceans of the Baltic and North Seas - Cetaceans of the Mediterranean and Black Seas - Seals in the Wadden Sea - Siberian Cranes - Slender-billed Curlews
Other relevant novelties include a new 'FAQ' section (on migration, animals, conservation and CMS), new 'Events/Meetings' section, renovated 'News' and 'Links' sections and also the possibility to request official documents online. All this in a new interface, with more graphics and in-built frames so as to make surfing speedier and more attractive. The renovation has concentrated on the English version; French and Spanish versions will follow in due course, as resources allow.
The location of the website remains unchanged at http://www.wcmc.org.uk/cms. It is the result of a long-term cooperation with and the assistance from the World Conservation Monitoring Centre, for which the UNEP/CMS Secretariat is most grateful.
A special effort is being put to keep the site up to date now and in the future and to provide useful information to the Parties, to interested professionals and to the general public. Comments, criticisms and suggestions are all welcome. In addition, we would like to invite webmasters to link their related websites to CMS and subsequently inform us, should they like to do so.
