The Second International Workshop on the Conservation and Research Needs of the Indo-Pacific Humpback Dolphins, Sousa chinensis, in the waters of western Taiwan will take place in Changhua City, west-central Taiwan from September 4-7, 2007.
The workshop is being sponsored by the Council of Agriculture (Taiwan); National Museum of Marine Biology & Aquarium (Taiwan); and Wild at Heart Legal Defense Association amongst others. We believe that many of the international delegates from the first workshop will be returning so it would appear that Drs Reeves, Jefferson and Perrin will be present. Dr John Wang of FormosaCetus Research and Conservation Group will be chairing the workshop. The workshop will include cetacean researchers and scientists, conservationists, environmentalists, economists, developers, industry, and government. To our knowledge attendance of the workshop is by invitation only.
