Upcoming Events

The European Cetacean Society's 17th Annual Conference will focus on Marine Mammals and Sound, which is particularly appropriate given the local history of strandings related to military sonar use. The conference will be hosted on 9-13 March 2003 by the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Canary Islands, Spain), and is sponsored by the Environmental Department of the Canary Islands Government. For relevant information about registration, hotels, sponsors and more see http://www.uicmm.ulpgc.es/
