      Workshop Announcement: National Marine Fisheries Service(NMFS)/National
      Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in conjunction with Madras
      Veterinary College/TANUVAS is organizing a follow up workshop to Kochi
      2010 in Chennai, India Nov 8-11th, 2011 at Madras Veterinary College,
      Chennai. The workshop is titled ' Establishing a model marine mammal
      stranding network in SE India: Necropsy and Stranding Response Training".


      Focus is on 'Training the Trainers' and participants are chiefly from SE
      India (Chennai and neighboring areas) or those with background/ current
      involvement in active field response to stranded marine animals
      (including turtles).

      Prior experience or ability to train staff/recruit volunteers is a
      necessary criteria for workshop participation. The first two days will
      involve necropsy training. Next 2 days will involve stranding response
      and a primer on entanglement response.

      Establishment of network will involve coordination with existing NGOs,
      Turtle Action Groups, Veterinary Pathologists, Student Researchers, and
      Forest Officials. Post Workshop Discussion with NGOs, decision
      makers/managers is currently being planned. Trainers are from
      Smithsonian Institution, IFAW, NOAA, and WHOI. POCs: Dr. R. Sridhar
