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 & Call For Abstracts
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 experiences.

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, 2011.

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.
