International Sirenian Symposium

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

Initial Announcement
You are invited to participate in the Fifth International Sirenian
Symposium being held on Sunday, November 27, 2011 from 08:30AM-5:00 PM
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 must be
submitted electronically to Nicole Adimey (nicole_adimey at fws.gov) by
August 31, 2011.

Instructions on how to register for this workshop, will be available in
the near future on the Biennial Conference web site at:

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