In order to promote greater participation in international dialogue and
scientific knowledge exchange on Mediterranean common dolphin, essential to
strengthen both the scientific and conservation efforts on the species
locally, nationally and internationally, Oceanomare Delphis Onlus
<http://oceanomaredelphis.org> (ODO) and the Biological Conservation
Research Foundation <http://www.bicref.org> (BICREF), together with
OceanCare <http://www.oceancare.org>, are jointly organizing the first
International Workshop on this Mediterranean endangered cetacean species at
“Albergo della Regina Isabella <http://www.reginaisabella.com>”, Ischia

The event will focus on current status and trends of the species in the
Mediterranean Sea in order to:

   - assess the species under the IUCN Red List criteria;
   - share scientific information and methodologies between research groups;
   - enhance conservation efforts, locally and internationally;
   - define a platform for launching new partnerships, activities or
   projects.

cetacean species to participate in our exploration of new effective
conservation ideas and possibilities. Observers have to cover their own
