By The Associated Press

U.N. conservation delegates at a weeklong CITES meeting in Geneva approved sanctions against seven nations Comoros, Guinea-Bissau, Paraguay, Nepal, Rwanda, Solomon Islands and Syria if they do not either strengthen their laws or provide national reports that are required of them before October 1. Here are some of the more valuable species found in those countries that conservationists worry about:

Comoros Islands: Lemurs, a rare and exotic species.

Guinea-Bissau: Marine turtles, manatees and chimpanzees.



Paraguay: Jaguars, tamarins and forestland.

Nepal: Tigers, rhinos, elephants, snow leopards and red pandas.

Rwanda: Mountain gorillas, chimpanzees, black rhinos Solomon Islands: Parrots, cockatoos and other wild birds.

Syria: Lizards, snakes, parrots, ibis, flamingos and other birds.
