Change of Date-  Due to an unforeseen schedule conflict, the joint 
NOAA/USFWS information session to answer questions about importing and 
exporting marine mammal samples from and to the United States under 
CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild 
Fauna and Flora) will be held on *Tuesday, November 29th* at the Society 
for Marine Mammalogy 19th Biennial Conference.

A representative from NOAA's Southwest Fisheries Science Center 
(providing the perspective of an importer/exporter and applicant for 
CITES permits) and from the USFWS Division of Management Authority (from 
the CITES regulatory perspective) will be on hand to answer questions. A 
representative from NMFS Office of Protected Resources will provide the 
NMFS Headquarters permit perspective.

The session will take place on Tuesday, November 29 from 5:30-7:00pm at 
the NOAA Booth (either Booth 131 or 132 in the same hall as the posters).

Everyone is welcome, especially if you have plans to import/export 
samples the in future.

Some examples of questions we can help answer:

What paperwork is required to legally export/import samples to the 
United States under CITES?
Who do I request permits from in my country?
Who needs to validate the permit before the samples cross any borders?
What will happen to my shipment if it doesn't comply with the CITES 
Who do I need to contact if I am expecting an import of marine mammal 

We hope to see you there!
