Dr. Roseline C. Beudels-Jamar:
Protecting Sahelian Antelopes

Dr. Roseline C. Beudels-Jamar is currently with the Conservation Biology section of the Royal Institute of Natural Science of Belgium. She is mostly involved with research and studies related to threatened species, detection of species and populations at risk, their evolutionary history, biogeography, eco-ethology and trends, the prediction of the dynamics and extinction risks of smallpopulations, the development of data collection methodologies adapted to vulnerable species, in particular,individualmarking, identification and monitoring techniques, to the design and implementation of restorationprogrammes. She has been involved with migratory species conservation for the last 10 years through the work of the CMS Scientific Council, within she actss as the focal point for the Sahelo-Saharan Antelopes CMS concerted action.

He has been with WDCS for 13 years having built up the WDCS campaigning arm specializing in a wide range of issues affecting cetaceans. Chris Butler-Stroud has acted as an advisor to several governments on whaling and cetacean related policies and currently is a board director of Wildlife and Countryside Link, a body encouraging cooperation between UK CEOs in affecting Government policy.

Dr. John Cooper:
Conserving migratory marine birds with the Bonn Convention and its daughter agreements: sucesses to date and ways forward

He is a Chief Research Officer in the Avian Demography Unit, University of Cape Town. He has studies the biology of seabirds for over thirty years in southern Africa and in the sub-Antarctic, but now concentrates on policy research an conservation issues. John Cooper is especially interested in supporting initiatives by internatinal bodies to improve the status of threatened seabirds and their habitats on global scale. To this end he has worked with the Bonn Convention on Migratory Species and its Agreements, as well as with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources, the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research and the World Conservation Union.

Prof. Dr. Boris Culik:
Albatrosses, penguins, whales and turtles: wanderer of the oceans

Er studierte Toronto, Kanada Biologie. Im Rahmen seiner Diplomarbeit galt sein Interesse der Wolfsspinne "Geolycosa domifex", ihrem Verhalten und Energiebedarf. Nach seiner Rückkehr nach München arbeitete Culik 1980 zunächst als Pharmaberater. Im Frühjahr 1982 hörte er erstmals von der Deutschen Antarktisforschung und stellte sich am Kieler Institut für Meereskunde vor. Seither beschäftigte er sich mit Pinguinen und Walen. Während er sich in seiner Doktorarbeit noch mit einem ökotoxikologischen Thema befasste,der Fluoridbelastung krillfressender Pinguine, untersuchte er in seiner Habilitationsschrift das Verhalten und den Energiebedarf von antarktischen Pinguinen. In den letzten Jahren hat Prof. Culik die Pinguine allerdings etwas aus den Augen verloren: jetzt untersucht er das Verhalten von Walen, genauer gesagt von Schweinswalen. Sie leben an den deutschen Küsten und sind vor allem durch Netze, zum Beispiel Treib- und Stellnetze und durch Großbaustellen der Offshore-Windindustrie gefährdet. Culiks Doktoranden widmen sich den Grauwalen vor der mexikanischen Küste und den Tümmlern vor Chile. Auch hier sind jedoch die Auswirkungen des Menschen, die Umweltveränderungen und Störungen Thema der Untersuchungen. Prof. Culik ist Autor von über 100 Veröffentlichungen, hat 5 Bücher über Pinguine verfasst, darunter ein Was-ist-was Buch für Kinder und hat mehrere Stunden original Filmaufnahmen seiner Expeditionen in TV-Dokumentarsendungen gezeigt. Auf der Internetseite der „Convention on Migratory Species“ ist Culiks letzte Publikation zu finden, ein über 300 Seiten starke Enzyklopädie der Kleinwale, ihrer Verbreitung, ihres Wanderverhaltens und ihrer Bedrohung. Prof. Culik hat über 20 Expeditionen in die Antarktis, nach Chile, Mexiko und Kanada durchgeführt um Pinguine, Wale und Schweinswale vor Ort zu studieren. Seine Bilder und Ergebnisse hat er in über 100 Vorträgen auf Konferenzen und vor interessierten Laien an Land und auf See vorgestellt.
