About ECS

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 Conferences in a European country.

In most countries in Europe, the ECS is represented by a National Contact Person (NCP, List only accessible for admins). ECS membership fluctuates between 350-750 persons from more than 25 European countries and several countries outside Europe. Students make up about 50% of the membership and the society is financed through the annual membership subscription.
