The Convention aims essentially at assuring the welfare of animals, and in particular, of pet animals kept for private enjoyment and companionship.
Animals belonging to threatened species, and protected by other conventions, in particular, the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora, opened for signature in Washington, on 3 March 1973, and the Bern Convention (ETS No. 104), opened for signature on 19 September 1979, are thus excluded from the provisions of this text.
The Parties meet regularly to examine the application of the Convention and, if appropriate, to extend or strengthen its provisions.
