Places are still left for the ACCOBAMS/ASCOBANS workshop “Conserving Cetaceans in
the Seas around Europe through Synergy-building between the Relevant Legislative Frameworks”. It will be held on 12 March in Funchal, Madeira.

The Workshop aims to assess critically the gaps and overlaps between the many frameworks relevant for cetacean conservation (Habitats Directive (HD) and Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD), ASCOBANS, HELCOM, OSPAR, ACCOBAMS, Barcelona Convention, Bucharest Convention, CMS, CBD, IWC), and to identify synergies that can be expected to help take forward cetacean conservation in an integrated and effective manner.
