Abu Dhabi, 1st March 2021 - In recognition of World Seagrass Day 2021, we are thrilled to announce the official launch of the Dugong & Seagrass Hub.
The Hub is a communal platform for dugong and seagrass conservationists to collate and share information, resources, best practice and lessons learned working to conserve seagrass ecosystems in dugong range states.
Through the portal visitors can find information relating to relevant seagrass ecosystem conservation projects, and access a rich resource library of relevant publications, webinars and news. The Hub provides links to international seagrass and dugong datasets, and a wide selection of practical toolkits available to use in the field.
The site has been developed by the Secretariat of the Memorandum of Understanding on the Conservation and Management of Dugongs and their Habitats throughout their Range of the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS Dugong MoU), as part of the Seagrass Ecosystem Services Project. This project is part of the International Climate Initiative (IKI) and supported by the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) based on a decision of the German Bundestag.
The Dugong & Seagrass Hub would be delighted to feature your resources, news and stories. If you are interested in having your work showcased, please contact: [email protected].
