Fourth Conference on Cetacean Conservation in South Mediterranean Countries


The Fourth Conference on Cetacean Conservation in South Mediterranean Countries (CSMC4) will take place in Oran (Algeria), from 11th to 13th November 2017.

The aim of the Biennial Conference is to assess the knowledge acquired on cetaceans in the South of the Mediterranean, identify potential gaps and stimulate the development of conservation actions in order to promote the implementation of the ACCOBAMS Agreement. Through its regular organisation, this Conference will allow cetacean specialists, active in the South of the Mediterranean, to exchange their experience and their data and to discuss the best approaches and priority actions for a better knowledge on cetacean populations in this region where data still remain sporadic and scarce. This Conference also aims at involving the student community and at rising awareness of future managers and stakeholders concerning marine issues.  This Fourth Conference will address the main following topics:

-    interactions between cetaceans and human activities (fisheries, anthropogenic noise, whale watching, …)

-    monitoring of populations and strandings,

-    critical habitats for cetaceans,

-    conservation plans for cetacean species,

-    exchange of information,

-    photo-identification of cetacean species
