Distance sampling is a survey technique widely used to estimate the 
density and abundance of marine mammal populations, and other taxa.  The 
Centre for Research into Ecological and Environmental Modelling are 
pleased to announce that we will be running 3 live online workshops this 
summer on aspects of distance sampling.  Registration is now open for 2 
of them, and will be for the 3rd soon.  The workshops are:

1. Spatially explicit models for distance sampling data: density surface 
modelling in practice, 16th-20th August 2021.

2. Distance sampling when animals are missed at zero distance, 30th-31st 
August 2021.

3. A practical guide to distance sampling survey design and simulation, 
13th, 14th and 16th September 2021.

We are offering one free place on each workshop with the goal of to 
widening participation to scientists from countries with fewer resources 
and groups traditionally under-represented in wildlife science.  More 
details are at


and the closing date for applications for the widening participation 
scholarships is June 15th.
