Dear MARMAM community,


We hope this message finds you and your families safe and healthy. As
previously announced, under the present circumstances we are forced to
post-pone the Conference of the European Cetacean Society in Israel until
Spring 2022. The current pandemic scenario opens too many question marks to
organize an ECS Conference in 2021 with enough guarantees. 


Nevertheless, at the ECS we believe it is important for the marine mammal
scientific community, not only in Europe but worldwide, to stay in touch.
Hence, we are delighted to announce the final program for an ECS WEBINAR
taking place between 15th to 19th March 2021, where invited experts will
share their knowledge and experiences with the wider community on a range of
topics covered traditionally at the ECS conferences. We hope that the
program we put together is as interesting to you, as it is to us!
