ASCOBANS Galway Roadshow

The Roadshow visited Galway in Ireland to work with ASCOBANS Secretariat, as part of their Advisory Committee meeting there in March 2012. Cetacean models added to the formal proceedings, and the roadshow also set up in a shopping centre to raise public awareness of the ASCOBANS Agreement and its importance in protecting marine wildlife in Western Europe
