29th June - 3rd July 2015 Sainte-Marie, Madagascar

Humpback Whale World Congress

Welcome to the official website for the Humpback Whale World Congress. The congress will take place from June 29th to July 3rd 2015 as part of the 'Festival des Baleines', ile Sainte-Marie, Madagascar.

Of all the international conferences on marine mammals that have taken place worldwide, none have devoted their attention solely to humpback whales. Although the humpback whale is likely to be the most observed and most studied, it is surprising that until now humpback whale specialists have had to meet on the sidelines of these scientific events. The World Conference on humpback whales has been created to fill this gap.

The Humpback Whale World Congress aims to advance scientific inquiry and conservation efforts of the humpback whale in their feeding ground, their breeding site and in their migration path. The congress will bring together researchers, scientists and organizations working in the various fields of research and conservation, promoting the exchange of expertise and partnerships.
