Fifth International Sirenian Symposium 2011     

In conjunction with the 
19th Biennial Conference on the Biology of Marine Mammals 
Tampa, Florida 
27 November 2011 

Second Announcement 
You are invited to participate in the Fifth International Sirenian 
Symposium being held on Sunday, November 27, 2011 from 08:30AM-5:00PM in 
Room 23 at the Tampa Convention Center. The aim of this symposium is to 
foster communication between sirenian researchers, managers, and policy 
makers from around the globe. Over the last couple of years we have made 
marked progress regarding sirenian conservation, management and research. 
At this symposium we hope you will be able to share your expertise and 
Scientists and managers are invited to submit an abstract to speak at the 
symposium; priority will be given to those presentations focusing on 
international efforts outside the U.S. to promote collaboration and 
information exchange with foreign programs. Abstracts will be considered 
for work involving the latest advances in Sirenian Conservation and 
Management; Stranding Response and Captive Care; Monitoring Applications; 
and Biology and Research. Those abstracts not selected for a talk will be 
invited to present a poster. In support of the Biennial Conference theme, 
it is suggested that presentations attempt to address some aspect of 
cumulative effects from human activities on local sirenian populations, 
and identify possible conservation approaches to address those effects.   
All presenters will be given up to 15 minutes, which includes time for 
questions. Abstract submissions should be in Word format, no longer than 
300 words (excluding title and authors), and contain the primary author?s 
full contact information and affiliation. Abstracts should follow the 
guidelines established for the Biennial Conference and must be submitted 
electronically to Nicole Adimey (nicole_adimey at fws.gov) by August 31, 
If you have not already done so, please register early at: 


There will be a small registration fee of $10.00/US for this symposium 
collected at the door.
