Welcome to the European Cetacean Society!
The European Cetacean Society (ECS) was established in January 1987 and aims to promote and advance the scientific studies and conservation efforts of marine mammals and to gather and disseminate information about them to members of the Society and the public at large. The ECS is coordinated by a Council of 11 members and each year organizes an Annual Conference in a European country.
In most countries in Europe the ECS is represented by a National Contact Person. ECS membership fluctuates between 350-550 persons from more than 25 European countries and several countries outside Europe (total 25-42 countries). Students make up between 35 - 50% of the membership. The Society is financed through the annual membership subscription.
We are pleased to announce that the 35th annual European Cetacean Society Conference will be taking place in Catania (Sicily Island, Italy), in the Central Mediterranean Sea. This conference is being organized by the Marecamp Association at the University of Catania and the Ciminiere of the Metropolitan City of Catania.
