Panel Discussion:

Artificial Insemination & Reproductive Management

Monday, November 2, 2009

Holley Muraco will lead a "workshop-style" open panel discussion
featuring experts chosen based on their experience in the training of
behaviors that improve the reproductive management of marine mammals.

Behaviors useful for artificial insemination will be a priority, but
behaviors beneficial for natural breeding efforts and research will
also be covered.

Discussion topics may include: semen collection, urine, saliva, fecal
and blood sampling for hormonal analysis, ultrasound layout, vaginal
swabs, and vaginal endoscopy for cetaceans and pinnipeds.

Goals of the workshop will be to provide participants with current
progress of reproductive management behaviors, provide suggestions on
how to start a reproductive behavior training program, trouble shoot
problems with reproductive behaviors currently being trained,
brainstorm creative and novel approaches to training reproductive
behaviors for difficult species, and discuss the importance of working
towards genetically healthy, long-term captive populations of marine
mammals.

Note:  This workshop is included with IMATA Conference registration, 
and open seating will be offered.  Conference name badge credentials
are required for admission.

This workshop is scheduled from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm* and will be held
at the Atlanta Hyatt Regency.  

*workshop starting times are subject to change.
