19th Biennial Conference on the Biology of Marine Mammals
The theme for this year’s "Cumulative effects of threats to marine mammals: Challenges to animals, scientists, and managers."
As human activities in marine and aquatic environments continue to increase worldwide, the combined and cumulative effects of these activities are posing greater threats to marine mammals as individuals, populations, and species. An integrated, multi-disciplinary approach is needed to analyze and mitigate the cumulative effects of these activities on marine mammals and ecosystems; this approach is also needed to inform conservation management paradigms moving toward ecosystem management and marine spatial planning.
The conference will highlight approaches used to integrate multiple factors into analyses of effects, and examples of how multi-disciplinary approaches have helped to attain conservation goals.
