Dear Marmamers

As marine mammals face an increasing myriad of challenges that threaten
their survival, a multidisciplinary approach is essential for their
conservation. As a community, we do research, teach, publish, and seek
finding, while trying to accommodate a pressing need for science
communication and education, as well as the development of new technologies
and analytical tools. Marine mammal conservation, therefore, calls for an
inclusive, diverse, and collaborative scientific environment that can
effectively draw on the more specialised skills of various people,
including early career researchers.

We would like to share with you our latest publication, a perspective
article, where we (both early career researchers) discuss how collaboration
is not only good for conservation, but also for researchers themselves and
for promoting a healthy work-life balance. The piece was published in a
special issue in Frontiers titled "Solving Complex Ocean Challenges Through
Interdisciplinary Research: Advances from Early Career Marine Scientists".

Cosentino, M and Souviron-Priego L. Think of the Early Career Researchers!
Saving the Oceans Through Collaborations. Frontiers in Marine Science.
Freely available at

We look forward to your thoughts
