Spaces left!


Dear All,


On behalf of the Steering Group* I am pleased to let you know that some
places are left for the ACCOBAMS/ASCOBANS workshop "Conserving Cetaceans in
the Seas around Europe through Synergy-building between the Relevant
Legislative Frameworks". It will be held on 12 March in Funchal, Madeira.


Its aim is to assess critically the gaps and overlaps between the many
frameworks relevant for cetacean conservation (Habitats Directive (HD) and
Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD), ASCOBANS, HELCOM, OSPAR,
ACCOBAMS, Barcelona Convention, Bucharest Convention, CMS, CBD, IWC), and to
identify synergies that can be expected to help take forward cetacean
conservation in an integrated and effective manner. Please find the
announcement of the ECS website here
