Good news from this year's conference of the European Cetacean Society (ECS), which was held last week in Galway, Ireland! Tilen Genov, Morigenos president, was elected as a new member of the ECS Council. ECS is a professional association whose objectives are to promote and co-ordinate the scientific study and conservation of marine mammals and to gather and disseminate information about marine mammals to Members of the Society and the public at large. The Society organizes annual conferences at which experts from around the world present the results of their latest research. Morigenos team presented the work and progress in research and conservation of dolphins in Slovenia.
