From the 1st to 3rd of May, the annual conference of the European Cetacean Society took place in Middelfart, Denmark. The event allows marine mammal researchers, students and enthusiasts to present their latest study results, discuss current issues, and, of course, to catch up with their colleagues from across the globe. Odyssea participated also this year and 2 of our researchers, Amandine Gillet and Anna Schleimer, presented results from their PhDs as posters. Anna received the best postgraduate student poster award for her study on modelling fin whale habitat in the Gulf of St Lawrence. Next year’s conference will be held in La Spezia, Italy!
