PostHeaderIcon Teaching Module on the Conservation of Cetaceans

Training, raising public awareness, and the development and structuring of scientific research, are key to achieve the conservation objectives established by the ACCOBAMS Agreement, which notably provides that the Parties implement activities relating to capacity building, the collection and dissemination of information, and training and education.

Receiving financial support from the Italian Ministry of the Environment, the ACCOBAMS Permanent Secretariat developed a teaching module on the conservation of cetaceans for Mater's level students. As a first stage of implementation, this module was taught in French-speaking Universities.

By developping this module and putting it at the disposal of the universities who wish to incorporate it into their teaching curriculum, the ACCOBAMS Permanent Secretariat aims to promote the teaching of cetology and develop national expertise in the study and conservation of cetaceans.

This teaching module includes a total of 30hours of teaching and addresses several aspects of cetacean biology, ecology and conservation. Following a multidisciplinary approach, this module is organised around 4 major themes:
  • Species of cetaceans,
  • Threats to cetaceans and Conservation Measures,
  • Study Techniques,
  • Legal and Legislative framework for the conservation of cetaceans.
