MegaMove: informing global marine megafauna conservation

MegaMove is a team of scientists committed to generate the impetus needed to overhaul marine megafauna conservation at global scale. Their goal is to bring together the marine movement ecology community to join efforts in addressing this global challenge.

The MegaMove team, led by Dr. Ana Sequeira (ANU Research School of Biology), has planned a public event to share ideas, meet new colleagues, and potentially start new collaborations.

This event will include presentations from the MegaMove steering committee members as well as guests from CSIRO, University of Queensland, and University of Bristol.

Presentations will be followed by a sundowner with drinks and nibbles, so please RSVP by 16 Feb to reserve your place! All welcome.
