Dear Marmam,

It is from my pleasure to share my new article entitled "PHOTO IDENTIFICATION OF DUGONGS IN MARSA ALAM AND WADI EL GEMAL NATIONAL PARK, EGYPTIAN COAST OF THE RED SEA".

The Abstract:
A total of 30 dugongs were recorded at the Egyptian Red Sea coast between December 2015 and October 2017 using Photo ID technique. Out of them, 16 individuals were identified at Marsa Alam and 14 at Wadi El Gemal National Park. Males were seven times more than females and calves were also recorded. A Photo ID catalogue was prepared for the individuals with records of their occurrence among sites and the presence of particular dugongs for specific sites was confirmed. Long and short distance movement among the study sites
were recorded for eight different dugongs. This is the first study to document the population number of dugongs in the inshore area of the Egyptian Red Sea coast. Further studies are recommended offshore sites in WGNP for better documentation of this group of animals.
