Eighth International Sirenian Symposium

We are pleased to announce the following Symposium to be held in conjunction with the 22nd Biennial Conference of the Marine Mammal Society on  Saturday, October 28, 2017 from  8:00 am – 5:00 pm.  
The Eighth International Sirenian Symposium is an all-day meeting to foster communication between researchers, managers, and policy makers on all aspects of Sirenian Conservation. Individuals are invited to present novel research on Sirenian conservation and management, stranding response and medical assessment, monitoring applications, and general biology and research. The symposium will include presentations, a poster session, and a panel discussion.  Sirenian items will be available for purchase to raise funds for travel grants. 
The cost of this workshop has been supplemented by outside funding sources, therefore, participants will only be charged $25 USD.  Please register early, as this symposium has limited seating.  After July 13th the cost for each participant will increase to $35 USD.
Those interested in presenting research should submit an abstract (300 word limit, 12pt font) to Nicole Adimey ( adimey22@gmail.com ) by  August 18, 2017.  Preference will be given to speakers conducting research or addressing conservation issues outside the United States of America.  Travel grants may be available for individuals from outside the United States of America; contact Nicole Adimey directly via email for more information.
