There will be a one-day workshop on Viewing and Interacting with Wild 
Marine Mammals to be held on Sunday, November 27, 2011 in Tampa, 
Florida, prior to the Society for Marine Mammalogy 19th Biennial 
Conference.

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together stakeholders to 
discuss activities for viewing and interacting with wild marine mammals 
that may impact individuals and populations, and to discuss the 
advantages and disadvantages of various management solutions for 
minimizing potential impacts, including enforcement challenges for 
management.  The workshop will consist of two sessions of presentations 
from around the globe and conclude with a plenary discussion.  The first 
session of presentations will focus on research on impacts of activities 
for viewing and interacting with wild marine mammals, and the second 
session of presentations will focus on management of these activities. 

Pre-registration can be done through the SMM website at

There is a registration fee of $25, which will be used to cover costs 
for audio-visual equipment, bagels and coffee in the morning, and an 
afternoon coffee break.

This workshop is organized by staff from the United States NOAA National 
Marine Fisheries Service.
