The fish in the seagrass swim round and round, round and round. Fish in the seagrass swim…. - May 2017

Our friends at Project Seagrass just posted our favorite seagrass You Tube video to date.

Watch and listen as 'the fish in the seagrass swim round and round, round and round' and the 'pollution in the water get filtered out, filtered out' A children's classic repurposed for conservation.

The animations are beautiful and the music is wonderful. A great effort!

Exercising caution when viewing this video, as you just may not be able to get it out of your head.

Indonesian fisherman agrees to release a captive dugong after efforts of our Indonesian partners - November 2016

On 22 September 2016 a male dugong was released into waters in Sulawesi Province, Indonesia. The dugong was found alive and entangled in a gillnet owned by a local fisherman. The dugong was held in captivity for a week prior to its release. While our project partners, DSCP-Indonesia, were able to convince the fisherman that dugongs are rare and fully protected in Indonesia, he consented to release the dugong. A medical examination and morphological data collection were conducted by DSCP-Indonesia Team, then dugong was released together by Tolitoli Fisheries Agency, BPSPL of Makasar, BKSDA of Central Sulawesi, Head of Dampal Utara Subdistrict, Head of Bampapula Village, DSCP-Indonesia Team and local community.

Mr Weebl’s totally inaccurate song about Dugong’s – viewed 4.5m times! - June 2008

This music video contains many inaccuracies about dugong. They are not the same as a manatee and, we believe, are much cuter than a dolphin. But, at least the song is correct in pointing out that dugongs dont have wings nor do they live in trees. This MrWeebl dugong song is too good to ignore, and with 4.5 million views who can fault MrWeebl!

With all these songs about dugongs, we needed one about seagrass – here you go! - June 2008
