Are you an MPA manager involved with cetaceans in your Marine Protected Area?

Do you need to reinforce capacity on photo-ID and/or expert databases ?

Do you want to create a catalogue with relevant data for cetacean conservation?

ACCOBAMS is organising a 5-day training session in collaboration with SPA/RAC, IUCN Med, MedPAN and Lebanese CNRS, from 1st to 5th October 2018 in Lebanon.

The main objective will be to go towards standardization of the methods / tools used to share and valorize the data collected (i.e. through scientific publications) on cetaceans in order to optimize the efforts undertaken by all stakeholders involved in cetacean conservation and to improve the status of cetacean.

Draft programme

Around 40 participants from the Mediterranean and Black Sea, including ACCOBAMS Partners, ACCOBAMS experts as well as MPAs managers are expected to the training session. The session will be in English with simultaneous translation in French.

Up to 5 MPA’s managers from the MedPAN network are invited to participate in this training course. Their participation expenses will be covered by ACCOBAMS.
