        from Christian Fries Added 630 11 4

        More than 10 Turtles call the natural bay of Abu Dabab in southern Egypt their habitat. Each afternoon they gather on the field of sea grass to feed. Unfortunately the spot, once a secret dive sport, becomes more and more crowded with divers and snorkelers who hassle the turtles. It is just a matter of time when the Turtles of Abu Dabab will be history. Please visit our website: www.belowthesurface.de

            • Back to the scene: Broadwater dugong sighting


              from Mic Smith Added 102 0 2

              There is at least one dugong that is commonly seen in the north bay of Wavebreak island. Whether it lives with the big herd of 1000 further north on the Amity Banks or is a loner that frequents this area is unknown but both are equally likely. The dugong feeds on seagrass beds across the channel from Wavebreak at South Straddy. Sustained dredging would wreck those seagrass beds and dugongs would never hang out there again because they are only interested in places with lots of seagrass because they like to graze alll the time like cows. Queensland is the world capital for dugongs and Moreton Bay Marine Park (which Wavebreak Island borders) has the biggest population of dugongs on the doorstep of a city. This video by shows the places where the dugong hangs out. This is one of the reasons to protest development of Wavebreak Island on Sunday.

                The Digital Environment Analysis Network (DEAN) an NSF project that provided an asynchronous communications system for seagrass researchers to communicate over large distances and different time zones. This video provides an insight into early text based communications systems for researchers to solve these problems.

                    • Community Centred Conservation C3 - Dugong Feeding Trails - Busuanga Palawan Philippines


                      from Community Centred Conservation Added 83 4 1

                      Dugongs populations are globally recognized as vulnerable, but have recently been classed as critically endangered in the Philippines. Dugongs have been hunted in the past using nets, prong, hook, spear, harpoon, and dynamite and the meat sold openly in public markets. Nowadays, bycatch in fishing nets is the most significant threat to the species' survival. Dugongs are also threatened by capture in fish corrals, seaweed farms and through the unregulated use of blast fishing. The dugong is reliant on shallow coastal seagrass and thus shares almost all of its habitat and natural resources with humans. Therefore, in order to successfully protect dugongs in the Philippines, it is essential that the human component is well-considered. The support and involvement of local communities is key to ensuring the continuation of the dugong in the Philippines. Busuanga Island is a recognized stronghold for dugongs in the Philippines, and our research aims to involve local communities to identify key sites for dugong conservation action. Since 2010, our team of researchers has developed strong relationships with local communities and established a community reporting network for dugong sightings. In addition, we have conducted traditional ecological knowledge interviews with expert fishermen to identify key areas for the species around the island. We are currently focussing on these key areas, using boat transect surveys to develop population estimates and more fully understand their ecology. Using these data, we will work to build community support and work with Local Government Units (LGUs) to establish locally-managed dugong sanctuaries, where activities that threaten the species’ survival (e.g. motor boat activity, net fishing) are controlled. The uniqueness of the dugong also makes it a great candidate for sustainable conservation through dugong-watching eco-tours, and an awe-inspiring flagship species for marine environmental awareness programmes.
