Welcome to TONMO, the premier cephalopod interest community, and birthplace of #WorldOctopusDay and #CephalopodAwarenessDays. Founded in 2000, we are a large community of experts, hobbyists and enthusiasts, some of whom come together when we host our biennial conference. To join in on the fun, sign up. You can also become a Supporter for just $50/year to remove all ads and enjoy other perks. Follow us on Twitter for more cephy goodness.
Is there a limited space or time limit for signing up for the TONMO event?-the reason I ask is due to the COVID-19 I am currently unemployed and placed on 'standby'. Due to this financing might be bit tricky for me until things get back to normal.
I was really hoping to make it this year but so far a lot of difficult challenges have come up.
Hi @KD5054 - sorry to hear, and good luck. I'm sending out a Newsletter in a bit on this topic, but basically, as of today, there is no change to the event - I'm going to re-assess in May (if MBL doesn't re-assess it for me first!)
Had to happen, right? One of my best friends made this and I suggested that she put some on her Etsy shop. She has a couple of octopus patterns, check her out if you want one. If what she has made up are not the colors you want, send her a note. Here is a different design.
Regretfully, but not surprisingly, we need to postpone our beloved cephalopod conference, due to uncertainty with the expected state of the virus for this autumn. We were poised for a great event, with strong registration trends up until the virus hit. We can't rightfully expect travel plans...
