Description: 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.  There will be a small registration fee of $10.00/US  
for this symposium collected at the door.  Organizers: Nicole Adimey &  
Robert Bonde
