Dear Marmamers 


Registration and Early Bird tickets are now open for the WCA's 5th
<https://www.worldwhaleconference.com/> World Whale Conference, co-hosted by
Fraser Coast Tourism & Events (FCTE) and the World Cetacean Alliance (WCA).
This 4 day event will be held in Hervey Bay, Queensland Australia from 7-11
October. The conference website and all details can be found here:
<https://www.worldwhaleconference.com> World Whale Conference 2019 


"Journeys that inspire change" is the theme through which the conference
will foster a greater understanding of whale migrations and their
significance for marine conservation. The event will entice an international
audience of experts and all stakeholders across research, cetacean tourism &
travel, education, the arts, welfare and conservation. There will be a
number of collaborative and educational talks, workshops, site visits, and
excursions to further develop skills and knowledge among participants, as
well as enjoying this very special place. Each year between July and
November thousands of migrating humpbacks take advantage of the sheltered
waters between Hervey Bay and Fraser Island to relax, play and socialise
allowing mothers to take time to nurture and train their calves. This makes
Hervey Bay one of the top whale watching destinations worldwide.  


A call for speakers and posters will follow this mail. In the meantime you
are welcome to contact the conference team at:
admin at worldwhaleconference.org


This will be the WCA's first conference in the Oceania Region with previous
conferences having taken place in Brighton, United Kingdom (2012),
Gloucester, United States (2013), Azores, Portugal (2015), and Durban, South
Africa (2017). 


We hope you will join us,

WCA Conference Team
