Borja Heredia is the leading bird expert at the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species, and has been appointed as senior advisor for the Agreement on the Conservation of Small Cetaceans in the Baltic, North East Atlantic, Irish and North Seas (ASCOBANS).
Although he records the challenge posed to the IWC by the establishment of a multispecies regional North Atlantic Marine Mammal Conservation Organization (NAMMCO) by Iceland, Norway, and Greenland, he makes no mention of or comparison to the new regional conservation agreements on small cetaceans, such as the Agreement on Conservation of Small Cetaceans in the Baltic and the North Sea (ASCOBANS) and the Agreement on the Conservation of Cetaceans of the Black Sea, Mediterranean Sea and Contiguous Atlantic Areas (ACCOBAMS).
