MORIGENOS AT THE 32nd CONFERENCE OF THE EUROPEAN CATEACEAN SOCIETY

At the 32nd conference of the European Cetacean Society in Italian La Spezia, Morigenos once again took active part in the conference. Four of our team members attended various workshops and the conference, where Tilen Genov presented a talk “Evaluating the population-level effects of cryptic events on a coastal dolphin population”.

Two posters were also presented. The first poster presented on a “Severe jaw injury in a common bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) from the Gulf of Trieste, the northern Adriatic Sea”, with Ana Hace as the lead author. The second poster, titled “First assessment of organochlorine levels in three different cetacean species in the Greek Ionian Sea” was presented in co-authorship with other researchers, led by Guia Consales from the University of Siena.

At the end of the conference, Tilen Genov received The Mandy McMath Conservation Award 2018 from the European Cetacean Society, for an outstanding contribution to the field of marine mammal conservation. You can read more about the award ceremony and award itself here.
