Barbary macaques seized in Spain

During Operation GAPIN, an international enforcement initiative co-ordinated by the World Customs Organization (WCO), more than 100 seizures of wildlife protected by CITES were made during the 2 week transregional operation in January and February to combat the illegal cross-border trade in wildlife and their derivatives.
Also a Barbary macaque was confiscated from a car that was on the ferry arriving from Morocco to Algeciras. This monkey was supposed to be smuggled to France.

A second macaque was confiscated from a private home in La Linea near Gibraltar last month.
