There will be a one-day workshop on Red Listed Pinnipeds  situations and solutions to be held on Sunday November 27th, 2011 in Tampa, Florida, prior to the Society for Marine Mammalogy 19th Biennial Conference. The purpose of this workshop is to bring together scientists working with pinnipeds that have landed on the Red List. It is hoped that joint discussion of common problems will help us to develop an Action Plan  leading to some solutions!

A few case studies will be presented to facilitate discussion and experts will provide advice on rehabilitation and release of endangered species.

Pre-registration can be done through the SMM website at http://www.marinemammalscience.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=591&Itemid=336&workshop=29

If you are interested in presenting at this workshop please let the workshop organizer (KK) know. 

Registration will be limited to 40 people in order to facilitate meaningful discussion and development of an Action Plan.

There will be no registration fee.

This workshop is being organized by the IUCN Pinniped Specialist Group.
