What we do
We aim to establish a community hub for practitioners, researchers and coastal communities working on the conservation of seagrass ecosystems and dugongs. The Dugong & Seagrass Hub is an online platform designed to share our collective tools, experiences and lessons learned whilst working to conserve seagrass ecosystems in dugong range states.
Our key approaches
Employing innovative participatory research methods that empower communities to assess the health of their seagrass and the biodiversity it supports, in order to inform conservation and sustainable management measures.
Creating a more favourable policy environment by connecting coastal communities and decision-makers, ensuring marine policies are based on scientific evidence and reflect the needs of both communities and ecosystems.
Increasing resilience and reducing the reliance of coastal communities on marine resources by developing innovative business models that directly contribute to seagrass and dugong conservation.
