    From The Editor's Desk

    Hello {name},

    Welcome to your Q2 TONMO update.

    First, concerning TONMOcon VII -- as a Newsletter exclusive, I will share that we are targeting the Marine Biological Laboratory at Woods Hole, Massachusetts (Marine Biological Laboratory — Biological Discovery in Woods Hole). This is an amazing venue, and I can assure you the quality of content will match it. I do not yet have a date, but we are targeting Spring of 2018. Watch this space. The pre-announcement thread continues here:
    Dun dun dun.... TONMOCon VII

    Next, ceph-keepers, please indulge us. Dr. Gavan Cooke is working in the UK on a chapter for a very awesome book on cephalopods. His chapter focus is "Cephalopod Enrichment" and if you have ever cared for a cephalopod in your home aquarium, he would very much like YOUR responses on the following survey:

    Last, if you didn't get a chance to hear me live on Natures Talk Show back in March, you can still listen to a recording. It was a really fun discussion and I appreciate them having me as a guest. I hope to return as we get closer to our next TONMOCON.
