Communication. Coordination. Collaboration. These three themes repeatedly rose to the surface during the 25th annual meeting of the Canada/Mexico/U.S. Trilateral Committee for Wildlife and Ecosystem Conservation and Management, hosted by the United States from May 17-20, 2021. Over the last 25 years, the Trilateral Committee has fostered a strong conservation partnership among Canada, Mexico, and the United States. This partnership is reinforced and strengthened in annual meetings, where participants come together to discuss, coordinate, and plan activities with shared goals ranging from species and ecosystem conservation to wildlife law enforcement and implementation of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES).
