International events: African Marine Mammal Colloquium!

The African Marine Mammal Colloquium is being hosted by the Mammal Research Institute (University of Pretoria) and the Dyer Island Conservation Trust.

The AMMC will create a forum whereby all interested people in the region can come together to present briefly their own, or their organisation's, marine mammal-related research, or conservation projects. Focus will be on fostering interaction and collaboration.

Cost:
- Prices to be finalised by January 2010, but will be R1500 or less. Payments due at the end of Feb 2010.
- We will attempt to reduce costs for student attendees and/or provide some travel sponsorship for those most in need.
- Price includes: Accommodation (3 nights), all meals and participation costs.
