Following the promising 2019 results obtained during our Mediterranean monk seal project, the Octopus Foundation presented a scientific poster at the World marine mammal conference in Barcelona, in December of 2019.

This was a great opportunity to meet with the scientists and professional that have been working towards the study and conservation of monk seals, as well as any species of marine mammal.

It’s also during such conventions that one can learn about the cutting-edge technology, and discuss with potential future partners.

Joan Gonzalvo, president of the conference’s organizing committee, is our scientific partner for the monk seal project through the Ionian Dolphin Project.
