Heads up seabirders!

The next "Meet the Masters" session with Dr. Akinori Takahashi and Dr. Stephen Votier is scheduled for 15 May 2015 at 0800 GMT (that's 0900 BST). All the ECS spots have been spoken for, but you can still get in on the conversation. Tweet your questions on Twitter with hashtag ‪#‎MTMSC‬ or submit them to the comments on the YouTube broadcast page. Tune in to watch the live broadcast or watch the archived video on ‪#‎seabirdersaturday‬.

Also, a new Meet the Masters session has been added to the schedule! MTMSC 5: Southern Exposure - Perspectives from the South Atlantic with Dr. Leandro Bugoni and Dr. Ross Wanless has been scheduled for mid-September 2015.
