There will be a one-day workshop on Science and Conservation of Hawaiian Odontocetes to be held on Saturday November 26, 2011 in Tampa, Florida, prior to the Society for Marine Mammalogy 19th Biennial Conference. The purpose of this workshop is to bring together scientists, managers and other interested parties involved with odontocete research, conservation and management efforts in Hawaiian waters to discuss current findings, planned research, and management strategies. Although focused geographically on Hawai'i, this workshop will be relevant to researchers and managers working in other island ecosystems and to those studying tropical odontocetes throughout the world.

Pre-registration can be done through the SMM website at

If you are interested in presenting at this workshop, abstracts will be due September 7, 2011.

Please submit a 300 word abstract following the SMM abstract guidelines to the workshop organizers (e-mail addresses below), with preference noted for talk or poster. Please note whether the abstract will also be presented at the SMM and in which format (talk or poster). If you have a poster presentations accepted for the SMM it can also be presented at this workshop, although depending on the number of abstracts submitted talks to be presented at the SMM should not be presented at the workshop.
There will be a registration fee to cover costs for AV, a continental breakfast, and two coffee breaks. The exact fee has not yet been determined but will not exceed $50/person.

This workshop is co-organized by Robin Baird of Cascadia Research Collective and Erin Oleson of the NOAA Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center.
