Dear MarMam communities,

We would like to invite you to participate to the workshop titled:

"*Marine litter: an emerging cause of concern for marine mammals*"

The workshop will be held on Sunday, April 30th 2017 form 9:00-14:00 in
Middelfart, Denmark within the 31st Conference of the European Cetacean
Society.

Please visit the workshop webpage: http://europeanceta c
eansociety.eu/conference/workshops-1

This workshop is organized by Maria Cristina Fossi, Matteo *Baini, *Cristina
Panti, and Amy Lusher.



The main aim of the workshop is to explore the emerging issue of the impact
of marine litter (in particular plastic litter) on marine mammal species.

Since most of marine mammal species (more than 66%) are affected by this
contamination, the workshop will be devoted to define the impact of marine
litter on marine mammals including the current state of knowledge,
methodological advances on and through the presentation of the new data
available on this topic.



The main expected outputs are:

-      To define harmonized protocols for the analysis of marine litter in
stranded organisms

-      To define new methods to evaluate the exposure to marine litter (in
particular plastics) in free-ranging organisms

-      To identify the most at-risk species to marine litter

-      To identify hot spot areas for marine mammals interacting with
marine debris

-      To propose mitigation actions for future recommendation



To register, please e-mail to Matteo Baini: matteo.baini at unisi.it

We kindly ask you to sign-up for the workshop by April 13th, 2017.

The participation fee is 15 € to be paid in cash on site.
