Hi Everyone,

I'm pleased to announce the registration for the 'Best practice principles
for monitoring the effect of coastal development on marine mammals' at the
upcoming SMM Biology of Marine Mammals is now open.  The full day workshop
will be held on Saturday 7th December Dunedin, NZ.  

In line with the conference theme: Marine Mammal Research and Conservation:
Making a Difference, this workshop addresses ways that science can mitigate
one of the major contemporary impacts on marine mammals. The pressures on
coastal marine mammals are increasing as the world human population
increases with consequential increase in world trade and port developments,
and the movement of peoples to the coastal zone. Combining these pressures
with the difficulties of studying marine mammals, the lack of baseline
information and inherent complexities in understanding short, long-term and
cumulative impacts, mitigation of these impacts can be challenging.  

This workshop will address these complexities and challenges through
engaging experts in the marine mammal field and discussion groups to develop
best practice principles.  The workshop is expected to appeal to a wide
cross-section of conference attendees enabling international insights to
inform the development of these principles.

Those interested in attending this workshop can register via the conference
