If you're in California, ESPP would like to let you know about the upcoming conference Whales 2010: Inspiring a New Decade of Conservation - The American Cetacean Society's 12th International Conference. The conference is in beautiful Monterey, Califonia and runs from November 12-14, 2010. ACS invites you to join a unique gathering of scientists, policy makers, and conservationists from all over the world to share current status, research, trends, and projects relating to cetaceans and their habitats.
If you make it, please be sure to visit with the wonderful folks at ¡Viva Vaquita! who will have some of artist Noah Scalin's Vaquita prints for sale to support their conservation efforts of the charming little porpoise. ACS also encourages you to enjoy the local delights, and enjoy whale watching, hiking, or kayaking Friday on the Monterey Peninsula.
The number of prints available corresponds with the remaining animal or plant populations.
For example, only 45 Amur Leopards remain in the wild, so for this edition, only 45 prints will ever be made.
A different organization, whose mission is to the ensure the survival of the species depicted, is chosen for each print. 100% of the sales of ESPP prints are donated to these conservation organizations.
