Marine Mammal aficionados in the Pacific Northwest (AK, WA, OR, and BC):

The annual spring meeting of the Northwest Student Chapter of the Society
of Marine Mammalogy (NWSSMM) is quickly approaching.  We’re pleased to
announce that this year’s meeting will take place for the first time in
Bellingham, WA!

We would like to invite all graduate (and undergraduate) students in the
Pacific Northwest, who are entangled in the study of marine mammals, to
attend and hopefully make a presentation about your research at the
upcoming NWSSMM meeting, hosted this year by Western Washington University
on April 8th and 9th, 2006. Don’t forget to bring your advisors as well!

Registration forms and abstracts for oral presentations are due by March
15th to Adria Banks (email below). Students at every stage in the research
process are encouraged to present!!  The purpose of the meeting is to
gather students in a casual, relaxed atmosphere to share research ideas,
tribulations, and triumphs. It is an opportunity to meet others across the
region, collaborate, and generally have a good time in a supportive,
unpretentious setting.

The meeting registration form, details, and developments will be posted
from here on out on the NWSSMM list serve, called “Troll”. If you haven’t
already done so, please sign up on Troll by sending an email to
troll-request at zoology.ubc.ca with “subscribe” in the subject.  Sign up
soon…even if you’re not sure that you can attend in April, being on Troll
will keep you in the loop.

If you have any questions or would like any clarification about the
upcoming meeting, please do not hesitate to contact Katie Luxa
(luxak at cc.wwu.edu) or Adria (banksa2 at cc.wwu.edu). If you have any
questions about the NWSSMM, please get in touch with the chapter contact
member Amanda Bradford (alb992 at u.washington.edu).  We look forward to
seeing you in Bellingham soon!
