    Dear Colleagues,

    We would like to invite you to participate in the upcoming workshop
"Listening for Aquatic Mammals in Latin America" (LAMLA) to be held prior
to the Latin American Society of Aquatic Mammal Experts (SOLAMAC) meeting
in Lima, Peru. Please note the schedule has changed because of SOLAMAC
organization: LAMLA meeting will be one day only, on Sunday, Nov 4th. The
preliminary schedule is given at the end of this message.

    In this third meeting, our aim is to bring together researchers,
professionals, and students working on bioacoustics to communicate their
work, interact with other researchers. We want to discuss directions for a
coordinated regional bioacoustics network and collaboration, essential to
strengthen both the scientific and conservation efforts on the species
locally, nationally and internationally. This year, we'll also propose a
training session in technical knowledge.

    Please join us in order to:

    ·     assess the effort to study sounds from all aquatic mammal species
that occur in Latin America;

    ·     share scientific information and methodologies between research

    ·     enhance conservation efforts, locally and internationally;

    ·     define a platform for launching new partnerships, activities or

    We would like to encourage anyone with interest in these studies in
Latin America to participate. Please, don't hesitate to forward this
message to colleagues or person you think interested but keep in mind work
has to be conducted in Latin America, no exceptions.
