To the MARMAM community:

I want to invite you to a one-hour webinar on Wednesday, August 15 at 1:00 PM Pacific time/4:00 PM Eastern time to share information about the Marine Mammal Bycatch Working Group, a team of experts convened by the University of Washington Ocean Modeling Forum and Oceans Initiative. The working group aims to assist nations seeking to comply with the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA) Import Provisions by developing scientific tools to evaluate data sets and methods for determining bycatch rates for marine mammal populations. The working group is funded by the Lenfest Ocean Program. To learn more, visit the Ocean Modeling Forum website here<http://oceanmodelingforum.org/working-groups/marine-mammal-bycatch-working-group/>, and the Lenfest website here<http://www.lenfestocean.org/en/research-projects/developing-recommendations-to-estimate-bycatch-for-the-marine-mammal-protection-act>.

During the webinar (agenda here<file:///C:/Users/eknight/Downloads/MMPAWebinar_Agenda_8.15.18.pdf>), the co-chairs and colleagues will describe the working group charge, the products they plan to develop over the next two years, and answer questions. Instructions to register for and join the webinar are also provided below.

We would also appreciate it if you would forward this information to any colleagues that might be interested, or recommend other contacts to me at eknight at pewtrusts.org<mailto:eknight at pewtrusts.org>. Experts in the field, decision-makers in other nations and international management bodies, and NGOs in particular might be interested. I'm also happy to answer any questions, so please reach out or point others to me as appropriate.
