The Permanent Secretariat of the Pelagos Sanctuary will organize on 29-30 October 2014, in collaboration with the ACCOBAMS Permanent Secretariat, a workshop on cetacean live stranding. Its objective is to define an administrative transboundary procedure in order to facilitate response to emergency situation where transboundary situation occurs in the Pelagos Sanctuary (pilot area of ACCOBAMS).

The administrative transboundary procedure agreed during the workshop will be presented to all Pelagos Sanctuary and ACCOBAMS Parties as a framework document for other areas where transboundary situation occurs.

Whoever is interested in participating to this workshop is invited to contact ACCOBAMS Permanent Secretariat as soon as possible (Mrs. Maÿlis Salivas: msalivas@accobams.net).
