Marine mammals are facing massive threats worldwide, such as noise and chemical pollution, bycatch, prey depletion, and global warming, at an unprecedented and ever-increasing scale.

Though actions have been taken by governments and NGOs to help dolphins, pinnipeds, or sirenians in the wild, the threats have only increased and there is a crucial need for relevant scientific information to improve conservation effectiveness.

Zoological institutions hosting marine mammals have a long history in scientific research, the rescue of aquatic animals, and in educating millions of people. Their expertise has been challenged by a few but very vocal organizations but remains a scientific reality.

The upcoming conference wants to show that we share the greater goal, the preservation of nature and all its fascinating marine mammals, and make all relevant stakeholders understand that they can count on ex-situ expertise and to rigorous scientific based work to participate actively in marine mammals’ conservation and guarantee their welfare in zoos and in the wild.
