Dugong Aerial Survey Database

Multi-decade database of dugong aerial survey studies.

This dugong aerial survey database has been compiled as part of a project funded by the Australian Marine Mammal Centre (AMMC). It is MySQL-based and currently contains data from 54 aerial surveys for dugongs in nine regions along the Australian coast since 1984 including:

  • Shark Bay (WA),
  • Exmouth (WA),
  • Pilbara (WA),
  • Gulf of Carpentaria (NT/QLD),
  • Torres Strait,
  • northern Great Barrier Reef (QLD),
  • southern Great Barrier Reef (QLD),
  • Hervey Bay (QLD), and
  • Moreton Bay (QLD).

The data from each survey area were analysed to determine estimates of relative dugong abundance and consists of a range of data spanning more than 30 years of collection.
