Environment is an issue devolved to Territory Governments. Where the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals has been extended to a UK Overseas Territory it is the responsibility of that Territory to decide how to deliver any obligations arising from it. If requested we will work with the Territories to which the Convention has been extended to help them meet their obligations.
