Biological diversity in a global community - small cetaceans and marine protection in Brazil and Sweden
The Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management is glad to invite you working with management, monitoring, research and outreach related to small cetaceans and marine protected areas. Its an online seminar with emphasis on dialogue.
About the event
Brazil and Sweden have for several years had a collaboration about the monitoring of marine mammals, with focus on mapping of the endangered Franciscana dolphin in the south of Brazil. The Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management together with our partners in Sweden and Brazil are currently working to define the next steps in this collaboration, which is also expected to include marine protected areas. Going forward, how can we shape the cooperation taking into consideration both countries’ knowledge and experiences with porpoises, small cetaceans and marine protection? Which directions and themes are relevant for the cooperation in order to address the needs of marine life? These are two of the questions that the seminar will address.
We invite you to a online seminar with emphasis on dialogue on 17 November 2022. The aims of the seminar are to exchange knowledge and experiences from both countries about porpoises, other small cetaceans and marine protection, as well as to identify relevant themes for the future collaboration. The seminar will be held in English.
Organisers: Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management in partnership with Jonsered Manor – Gothenburg University’s meeting place for cooperation, and the University of the Joinville Region in Brazil.
