A membership drive was conducted earlier within the India Ocean region. The group consists of 23 dugong and seagrass researches from 17 range states.
The group has been active through emails by circulating research findings, publications, technical guidelines and protocols.
Members of the group have been attending and contributing to GEF project related to dugongs and seagrass ecosystems.
We are planning for a technical workshop in collaboration with the UNEP-CMS dugong secretariat, Environment Agency Abu Dhabi and TOTAL to standardise data collection methodologies for all aspects of dugong research including the habitat seagrass.
