14-15 September 2019 (written by Dr Malcolm O’Toole)
Following an invitation to do a plenary presentation at the OceanObs’19 conference in Honolulu, Hawaii, Dr Ana Sequeira and Dr Malcolm O’Toole organized a 2-day workshop to establish the Marine Megafauna Task Team. The workshop was attended by almost 30 researchers and manufacturers from many national and international tracking networks.
Together we set out to coordinate and integrate marine megafauna tracking data in the global ocean observing systems (GOOS), and presented our ideas at OceanObs’19.
Keep an eye out for future developments!
