19aprAll Day6th Marine Mammal Student Symposium


Event Details

On 19th of April 2024, the 6th Marine Mammal Student Symposium co-organised by North Atlantic Marine Mammal Commission, Norwegian Centre for Law of the Sea, and Department of Arctic and Marine Biology is taking place. This year’s theme is: “Navigating Arctic Waters: Strengthening ties between Marine Mammal Research, Indigenous Knowledge & Law and Policy Making”.

The Symposium will be held in person in Universitetbibliotek Room 132 and online. Information about online links will be distributed in due time.

With climate change and increasing human activities modifying the Arctic landscape, it is important that we quickly learn how to navigate these new waters in order to protect this fragile environment. To do this, we need to work together: scientists who research the marine mammals of the Arctic, local and Indigenous peoples who have been living in this region for centuries, and law and policy makers whose job is to make decisions that will benefit both people and ecosystems.

This symposium represents an opportunity for students with common interests from various fields in natural, social, and legal sciences to share their ideas, knowledge, and experiences on topics related to marine mammal conservation and management. Research at all stages is welcome. You can present your finished research, as well as ongoing projects, ideas in development, research plans, and methodological challenges. Students focusing on research which is not directly on marine mammals but connected to the topic are also encouraged to present their work.
