The talk will provide background on the biology, feeding behaviour, habitat preference, and significance of dugongs in coastal waters around the globe. We will then focus in on specifics of past research projects in the region and our current state of knowledge on population abundance and distribution in the Arabian Gulf. We will close with a discussion on an ongoing multi-stakeholder research effort, including details about how the public can assist with sample identification and collection to contribute to enhanced understanding of this iconic species.
