The aim of this full-day symposium/workshop, in collaboration with the IUCN Sirenian Specialists Group, is to foster communication between researchers, managers, and policy makers. Scientists and managers representing countries from all over the globe are invited to present new information on Sirenian conservation and management, stranding response and medical assessment, monitoring applications, and general biology and research. A special session will be devoted to Dugong conservation efforts in the Indo-Pacific. The symposium will include presentations, a poster session, and a Q & A session. Sirenian items will be available for purchase to raise funds for future student travel scholarships. Space is limited, so please register early. If you would like to submit a presentation or poster please send an electronic copy of your abstract (300 word limit) to Nicole Adimey firstname.lastname@example.org by September 20, 2013.
