ASCOBANS Koenig Museum Roadshow in Bonn, Germany

As part of ASCOBANS International Day of the Baltic Harbour Porpoise, held in May every year, a roadshow was presented at Koenig Zoological Museum in Bonn, Germany. This roadshow featured all the species covered by the ASCOBANS agreement, and in particular highlighted the Baltic Harbour Porpoise. School groups and public attendance kept the ASCOBANS secretariat staff busy over the 4 day roadshow.
