Registration and call for poster abstracts are now open for the State of
the Science on Offshore Wind Energy: Workshop on Cumulative Impacts to
Wildlife. The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority
(NYSERDA) is hosting its second State of the Science Workshop
<http://www.nyetwg.com/2020-workshop> on Wildlife and Offshore Wind Energy
on May 5-6, 2020 in Rye Brook, New York. The first day of the workshop will
consist of plenary presentations to summarize the current state of
knowledge on cumulative impacts to wildlife from offshore wind energy
development, including a review of major stressors to marine mammals,
discussions of population consequences of disturbance (PCOD) modeling, and
cumulative noise impacts to marine mammals from pile driving and other
sources. The second day of the workshop will primarily consist of smaller
workshops focused on developing research plans to improve our understanding
of cumulative impacts, with one of the breakout groups focused on marine
mammals.

To register for the workshop, reserve a discounted room at the conference
hotel, or submit a poster abstract, visit the workshop webpage:
www.nyetwg.com/2020-workshop. The deadline for registration and abstract
submission is April 13, 2020.
