Dataset: Movement Patterns and Habitat Usage of Shark Bay Dugongs - Thesis


The extent and scope of the seasonal distribution movements and habitat usage of dugongs fitted with remote location recording and transmitting devices within the Shark Bay World Heritage Property (SBWHP) on the mid-West Coast of Western Australia were measured from 2000-2002. In addition to defining movement patterns and habitat preferences of individual dugongs an aerial survey was undertaken during the summer of 2002 to define population distribution and abundance estimates.
