[MARMAM] LAMLA (Listening for Aquatic Mammals in Latin America) Online Survey

The purpose of this survey is to collect baseline information of passive
acoustic monitoring effort and aquatic mammal bioacoustics research in
Latin America as the first step in organizing the 1st LAMLA – Listening for
Aquatic Mammals in Latin America Meeting. Passive acoustic monitoring is
used to investigate several aspects of the biology and ecology of aquatic
mammals. In recent decades, it has become a widely used method by experts
from all over the globe. Some significant advances have been made in the
development of this field in Latin American countries. However, the field
of aquatic mammal bioacoustics remains underdeveloped in Latina America,
despite the huge diversity of aquatic mammals and the gaps in current
scientific knowledge of species, habitats and conservation threats. A
clearer picture of passive acoustic monitoring effort, techniques used,
target species and habitats is necessary in order to define priority lines
of work. The aim of LAMLA is to bring the aquatic mammal acoustic research
community together, facilitating collaborative work and collective
decision-making. In order to identify interest and potential participants
from research groups working within Latin America, we kindly invite one
representative from each research group to complete our diagnostic
questionnaire at http://kwiksurveys.com/s/9RFyuG8j.

The online survey will be available until *December 10.*



We appreciate your attention and we hope to have great news about LAMLA for
you soon!

Best wishes,

LAMLA Organizing Committee
