The Society for Marine Mammalogy is a group of 2000+ scientists, policy makers and managers who at times stand on opposite sides of arguments which are actively discussed in today’s media. We are united in our mission to promote the global advancement of marine mammal science and contribute to its relevance and impact in education, conservation and management. We believe it is a strength of our Society that its membership hails from a broad global spectrum. The SMM provides links to articles and re-tweets of relevant tweets that are likely to be of interest to our membership on social media. Sharing links from other sources and re-tweets does not imply an endorsement of the views expressed, and the original tweets have not been peer-reviewed for accuracy. The nature of social media is dynamic and immediate, thus preventing the Society from instituting an elaborate review process prior to sharing and retweeting marine mammal-related news.
