Dear MARMAMers,

A new book on the conservation of cetaceans in the Mediterranean and 
Black Seas, authored by myself and Alexei Birkun and with a foreword by 
H.S.H. Albert II, Prince of Monaco, has been recently published by 
ACCOBAMS in the occasion of the fourth meeting of its Parties.  The book 
presents an update on the presence and status of cetaceans in the 
ACCOBAMS area, including details about the occurrences of all recorded 
species, and how the threats to cetaceans in the region are evolving. 
The book also contains a discussion of the most needed measures to 
improve the conservation status of the region's cetaceans. We conclude 
recommending that a strategic update be undertaken by the Parties to the 
Agreement, stimulated by renewed political vigour, if the continued 
existence of cetaceans in the region is to be assured.

dolphins and porpoises in the Mediterranean and Black Seas: an ACCOBAMS 
status report, 2010.  ACCOBAMS, Monaco.
