A national seagrass database updated annually and an interactive distribution map accessible at http: //gis. oseanografi. lipi. go. id/ A dugong database including sightings, stranding, live capture, and bycatch/ entanglement cases before and during DSCP at http: //db. oseanografi. lipi. go. id/dugong – • • Info from 1043 respondents obtained from CMS Dugong Catch/ bycatch questionnaire surveys in dugong database. An online dugong events distribution map by location and by time at http: //db. oseanografi. lipi. go. id/dugong/webgis Two of four administrator for the database were women GUIDELINES AND TRAININGS: • • • A guideline on standardized survey and monitoing methods printed, and disseminated to > 38 dugong and seagrass conservation practitioners online & offline (in training) A guideline on carbon measurement in seagrass ecosystem developed and disseminated to 41 seagrass research practitioners (in training) Two trainings on dugong and seagrass survey & monitoring method (n = 133 participants) One training for CMS Dugong Catch/ Bycatch Survey Questionnaire (n = 21 participants) More than 30% overall trainees and 50% of all trainers were women PRELIMINARY SURVEYS: • • • Data: dugong sightings feeding trail, genetics, and behaviours and seagrass species distribution and biomass across four studied sites Survey area: 107, 089. 46 ha (incl. seagrass) Four reports on findings for each site

WHY THE COLLABORATION? • To reach and engage with wider audience with visually interactive, attractive, and ‘friendly’ communication materials in raising awareness of the issue • To provide communication/ education assets to be used further by all stakeholders • To inspire people to be a part of conservation, despite academic background • To stimulate discussion and action about different approaches in solving the challenges

ARTISTS AND SCIENTISTS/ CONSERVATIONISTS • Scientists outside their methods (more objective), artists inside their methods (more subjective). • Scientists looks at how nature is considered as something ‘other’ than us, artists do as a ‘part’ of us. • Both scientists and artists care about the data, but with different perspectives. • Both care about the details, and many designers work easier with detailed instructions.

LESSONS LEARNED: THE PROJECT Internal: – Specifically assigned personnel for campaign implementation in each

LESSONS LEARNED: THE PROJECT Internal: – Specifically assigned personnel for campaign implementation in each project site is needed. – Specifically assigned personnel for knowledge management is needed since the project yields many online and offline assets. – Intensive and maintained communication and induction needed for a project that involves multi-background stakeholders with different administration and political system and work schedule. – Communication matters, especially media relations, should be led by the lead partner to minimize administration, branding, and political conflicts (e. g. payment for the media, press releases, etc. ). – Communication strategies developed for each site should consist of alternatives methods. – If the project includes many plans of event, consider working with event organizer, especially for logistics and technical issues. External: – Finding an educated and well informed public figure willing to work voluntarily as ambassador needs established relationship with the artists’ agency. – Although voluntarily, scheduling commitment with the ambassador must be consistent with the executive staffs of each ID 2 partner. – Voluntary partnership with partners outside ID 2 must be confirmed by all project partners before project implementation to avoid conflicts relating paid partnership with media (e. g. TV talkshow). – Some journalists still regarded dugong and seagrass issues as too scientific and not attractive, thus decreasing the chance for the issues to be published or passed the editor’s review.

LESSONS LEARNED: WORKING WITH DESIGNERS Internal: • Survey on the types of campaign materials

LESSONS LEARNED: WORKING WITH DESIGNERS Internal: • Survey on the types of campaign materials relating to audience target is necessary. • Creating common language with the designers can take time and commitment, both personal and technical. Design approval duration should be cleared prior to project implementation to avoid delay in production. • Establishment of national project brand profile (i. e. styles, etc. ) and document templates should be done before project implementation. External: • Establishment of long-term partnership (through the project) with certain creative agencies/ designers would be at lower cost than short-term one (i. e. consider a retainer agreement). • Don’t assume that designers are aware of our issues. Always introduce them briefly to the basic information and explain our needs very clearly. • Person in charge with communication with the artists must be tech. savvy since creative practitioners nowadays utilize new tech. products. • Working with designers with good communication skill (i. e. friendly, etc. ) minimize conflicts. • Successful campaign materials are produced from intensive communication with the relevant designers. • Styles of designers with experiences in environment/ non-profit issues instead of profit/ commercial ones would be more suitable for the conservation project.

UPSCALE/ REPLICATION POTENTIALS DSCP works in Indoensia have some upscale/ replication potentials to other

UPSCALE/ REPLICATION POTENTIALS DSCP works in Indoensia have some upscale/ replication potentials to other dugong hotspots, such as in: • Social media presence (for countries with high social media users) • Working with influencers/ public figure as champion and to boost promotions of issue • Working with national creative agencies/ designers to produce campaign materials • Producing visual-heavy campaign materials to target young people (for countries with dugong watching activities) • Dugong and seagrass database development • Guidelines development • Involvement of young volunteers
