Hey everybody! We are able to begin working our agenda for TONMOCON II in Sarasota, Florida, at Mote on June 23rd and 24th. This is a WORK IN PROGRESS, and needs to be vetted / approved with Mote and our presenters, but we do know this much: Dr. Steve O'Shea will be joining us and will be our "headline" speaker, addressing the topic of 'Giant Squids, Whales, Sex and Conservation'.

Other plans are outlined below -- again, this needs confirmation, but as you can see this is definitely taking shape. Don't miss out!
