SEA is very proud to be represented to the global marine mammal community by over half of our scientists at the 2019 World Marine Mammal Conference being held this week in Barcelona, Spain. Our SEA colleagues were collectively involved in nearly 50 formal presentations and posters within the conference and technical workshops. Nice work team!

Technical presentations for which SEA scientists were lead authors included the following:

Atlantic Behavioral Response Study – Responses of Cuvier’s Beaked Whales and Short-Finned Pilot Whales to Military Sonar off Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, USA” – Dr. Brandon Southall

“Feeling the Squeeze: Antarctic Minke Whales Balance the Dual Pressures of Maximizing Energetic Gains and Finding Suitable Habitat Around the Rapidly Changing Antarctic Peninsula” – Dr. Ari Friedlaender

Integrating Remote Sensing Methods to Measure Social Delphinid Baseline Behavior and Responses to Navy Sonar” – Dr. Caroline Casey

“Accounting for Positional Uncertainty When Modeling Received Levels for Tagged Cetaceans Exposed to Sonar” – Dr. Brandon Southall
