ASCOBANS has drawn up a Conservation Plan for harbour porpoises in the North Sea. This has been tabled as a document for the 6th Meeting of Parties in September 2009 (to be downloaded here), when it will hopefully be formally adopted by the Parties to ASCOBANS. In the meantime, uncontroversial parts of the plan should start to be implemented and time-limited funding is available for a part-time coordinator. The Advisory Committee suggested that this be done by a contract to a relevant institution or experienced individual based in a North Sea Party to ASCOBANS.
Applicants are requested to make an offer to the Secretariat by 30 July 2009. Please refer to the Terms of Reference for details.
