The eleventh annual working meeting of ACCOBAMS has taken place at the Novotel in Monaco. The Scientific Committee of the Agreement on the Conservation of Marine Mammals has the task of implementing the policy decisions stemming from the meeting of the national signatories of the accord in November, 2016.
Among the tasks for the coming year will be the mitigation of the impact of underwater noise generated by human activities. Work will also focus on carrying out a global inventory of marine mammals in the Mediterranean and the Black Sea, and identifying areas of particular importance for the conservation of whales, dolphins and porpoises.
National Council President Stéphane Valeri has visited the Grimaldi Forum to thank the team behind the screening campaign, while also encouraging more people to take the Covid-19 antibody test.
Prince Albert has been tested at a Covid-19 screening centre in Monaco to raise awareness about the government’s campaign to have as many people of the Principality tested as possible.
Monaco’s primary students made their return to school on Monday, the final group to do so in the government’s three-phase plan to lift the lockdown.
The Principality ordered some 11.5 million masks at the height of the crisis. Now those masks are being safely stored by the government for a rainy day.
