Crocodile in Sarawak is no longer fully protected by the International Convention on the Endangered Flora and Fauna Trade

Crocodile in Sarawak is no longer fully protected by the International Convention on the Endangered Flora and Fauna Trade – CITIES.

Therefore, crocodiles are not classified as animals listed in protected wildlife groups as stipulated in the Sarawak Wildlife Ordinance 1998. Crocodiles are allowed for commercial purposes and small-scale enterprises of Sarawak.

However this exclusion is not applicable in Peninsular Malaysia and the State of Sabah.

The abolition of crocodiles as protected animals in Sarawak is due to its population rising to 13,500 heads in 40 major rivers in Sarawak. The impact of the crocodile population increase is a threat to the lives of Sarawakians.
