ANNOUNCEMENT: ECS/ASCOBANS WORKSHOP ON "WIND FARMS AND MARINE 
MAMMALS" to be held on Saturday 21 April 2007 at the 21st Annual 
Conference of the European Cetacean Society, San Sebastien, Spain, 
hosted by AZTI-Pasaia (web site: 
http://www.azti.es/ecs2007/home.htm). It will take place in the 
Aquarium between 15:00 and 19:30 (with a 30' coffee break). There 
will be a fixed registration fee of 10¤/person for coffee & 
facilities.

Organiser: Peter Evans

Over the last ten years, the construction of offshore wind farms has 
taken place in many shallow coastal areas throughout Europe. Many 
groups have been contracted to investigate possible impacts on marine 
mammals (notably harbour porpoise, harbour and grey seal), and this 
has involved a variety of methodologies - visual surveys by boat and 
plane, deployment of T-PODs, land-based observations, and radio 
telemetry.

This workshop aims to review some of the findings so far with respect 
to marine mammal impacts, and to recommend best practice for 
monitoring species in the vicinity and possible effects both at the 
construction and production phase.

Those wishing to offer a 15 minute talk and/or attend this workshop, 
please contact Dr Peter Evans by 31 March at
