Medmaravis is an association of seabird researchers and conservationists dedicated to the study and conservation of coastal habitats and marine fauna in the Mediterranean region. It highlights the importance of seabirds' roles in the ecosystem, encouraging international agencies, governments and local authorities to protect the last wild coastal places.
Medmaravis has organized a number of conferences over the years, mostly with published proceedings, including of six seabird symposia (click here).
These proceedings are a useful source of information on the ACAP-listed Balearic Shearwater Puffinus mauretanicus and of the effects of longlining on Mediterranean seabirds.
