 Dear Friends,

We are pleased to invite you to attend the upcoming "Third Latin American
Symposium for Manatee Research and Conservation (SILAMA)" to be held in
Lima, Perú on  November 4th 2018, in the frame of  the Conference of the
Latin American Society of Aquatic Mammal Experts (SOLAMAC).

This symposium since its inception has been conceived as a space to share
advances in research and conservation of manatee species (Trichechus
manatus and T. inunguis) in Latin America.

We also aim:

1. To review the progresses and gaps in research and conservation of
manatee populations in Latin America.
2. To exchange experiences and advances in the management and conservation
of these species both in wildlife and in captivity
3. To discuss methodological approaches that allow meeting current needs,
and that fit to local ecological and economic conditions.
4. To make recommendations to promote international cooperation for
research and conservation of sirenians in Latin America

We encourage all researchers, students and stakeholders working with
manatees  in Latin America to submit abstracts. We welcome all submissions
regarding distribution, genetics, physiology, veterinary medicine, threats,
conservation (in situ and ex situ), management, environmental education,
cultural aspects and others.

    ++  To elaborate the abstract, please follow the instructions provided
in the SOLAMAC website. Abstracts should be sent to
silama3.2018 at gmail.com before
August, 31th 2018.

    ++ Answers of acceptation will be given on September 20th 2018

    ++ Fee for the workshop: US$10. Registration through the SOLAMAC website
(workshops section).

See you in Lima!

Att. The organizers
