Since its designation as a marine protected area in 2004, Dungonab Bay and Mukkawar Island have been recognized as significant sea turtle habitats, but little research has been done. Abdel-Rahman El Mahdi has been awarded a small SWOTS grant (Science Category) of USD1000 to help to fill the data gaps that relate to nesting and foraging sea turtles in the MPA and will use the information to recommend conservation and management efforts.

Since 2006, SWOT’s small grants have helped field-based partners around the world to achieve their research and conservation goals. To date, 123 grants have been awarded to 102 applicants in more than 53 countries and territories for work addressing three key themes: (a) networking and capacity building, (b) science, and (c) education and outreach.
