Barcelona gathers around 2,000 international experts in the 1st World Marine Mammal Conference
28.03.2019

About 32 % of marine mammals worldwide are listed as vulnerable species, endangered species or in danger of extinction, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). In the Mediterranean, the populations of Mediterranean monk seal (Monachus monachus) have practically disappeared, and the common bottlenose dolphin population (Tursiops truncatus) has reduced by 30 %. In other parts of the planet, some porpoise species –such as the Vaquita or Phocoena sinus- are in highly danger of extinction, and the polar bear population (Ursus maritimus), is expected to decline by 30 % by 2050.

 

Tackling global threats for the conservation of marine mammals, promoting international collaboration and improving conservation strategies of populations in regression are some of the goals in the 1st World Marine Mammal Conference – WMMC 2019, to be held from 9 to 12 December in Barcelona, under  the organization of the University of Barcelona and the entity Submon. This international event, which opened its registration period for participants, is promoted by the Society for Marine Mammology (SMM) and the European Cetacean Society (ECS), supported by the Biodiversity Foundation of the Ministry for the Ecological Transition.
