Dear Marmamers,

The World Cetacean Alliance is requesting your help with an important
online survey <https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/2ZNDVDV> to submit any ‘Areas
of Interest <https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/2ZNDVDV>’ in the African
region that you think could qualify for Whale Heritage Site status in
future.

Whale Heritage Sites are land and sea areas where people and cetaceans
(whales, dolphins, and porpoises) live close together, and where respectful
and sustainable practices lead to responsible tourism, sustainable
development, research and education, and the protection of marine species
and habitats.

The results of this survey will be discussed at the Whale Heritage Sites
Summit, Durban, South Africa, on 28-29 June 2017, and will form the basis
for further dialogue and efforts to encourage the establishment of Whale
Heritage Sites across the region.

The survey is open to any interested person, and includes locations across
coastal Africa and adjacent island states in the Indian Ocean and Atlantic
Ocean.

not on the Marmam list.

Many thanks.
