WG4 – CWI Database


WG4 is calling for your help and contribution to this important achievement!

One of the key expected deliverables of the COST Action FA1301 WG4 is the development of a Cephalopod Welfare Index database aimed to support the Cephalopod Welfare Index (CWI) Model: an operational, internet based decision support system based on a semantic model aimed for monitoring and assessing cephalopod welfare.

CephsInAction CWI Database is currently open for contributions!

A short guidance, the CWI-database manual and a short video are available here!

Earth Day 2016

 “Aquatic/Ocean, Coral Reef and Octopus” @ Google

We live on a beautiful planet, and it’s the only one we’ve got. Happy Earth Day!
An octopus, as representative of cephalopods and of the diversity and richness of the ocean and coral reef, is chosen as key ‘figure’ in one of the five illustrations by the Google Doodler Sophie Diao to celebrate 2016 edition of the Earth Day.

Earth Day, celebrated annually on April 22, may be the one day that transcends culture, language, and tradition.
