We are pleased to announce the following Symposium to be held in
conjunction with the 22nd Biennial Conference of the Marine Mammal Society
on Saturday, October 28, 2017 from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm.

The Eighth International Sirenian Symposium is an all-day meeting to foster
communication between researchers, managers, and policy makers on all
aspects of Sirenian Conservation. Individuals are invited to present
*novel* research
on Sirenian conservation and management, stranding response and medical
assessment, monitoring applications, and general biology and research. The
symposium will include presentations, a poster session, and a panel
discussion.  Sirenian items will be available for purchase to raise funds
for travel grants.


The cost of this workshop has been supplemented by outside funding sources,
therefore, *participants will only be charged $25 USD.  *Please register
early, as this symposium has limited seating.  After July 13th the cost for
each participant will increase to *$35 USD.*


Those interested in presenting research should submit an abstract (300 word
limit, 12pt font) to Nicole Adimey (adimey22 at gmail.com) by* August 18,
2017.  *Preference will be given to speakers conducting research or
addressing conservation issues outside the United States of America.
Travel grants may be available for individuals from outside the United
States of America; contact Nicole Adimey directly via email for more
information.
