Watch! Awesome TV Coverage from NDTV (India) of the Sri Lanka Projects

June 05, 2017

New Delhi Television (NDTV)featured our Sri Lanka Dugong and Seagrass Project in a 20 minute documentary film. This is the second major success of UN Environment sponsored media trip to Sri Lanka to highlight the global work of the Dugong and Seagrass Conservation Project.

NDTV is, and has been for more than a quarter century, a pioneer in India’s news television. NDTV is today the most watched news and lifestyle network in India.

Their wonderful documentary highlights the work of all our Sri Lankan partners. Watch the team dive to the sea bottom in search of the elusive dugong and sample seagrass beds. Visit local boutiques where garments are sewn as part of an incentive programme from LK7.

There are great interviews in the documentary from our UN Environment Representative to the women of the fishing villages who are sewing to supplement their income.

The film ends with an exploration a cooperative agreement between India an Sri Lanka to conserve dugong. We could not have asked for a more positive and hopeful conclusion to this documentary.

We are very proud of this documentary. On a global scale, this is the most attention the project has received and a excellent call for action among fishing villages, research teams and national governments to cooperate to save dugong and seagrass.

Congratulations to our Sri Lanka Team and thanks goes out to the UN Environment team who organized this media trip.
