Protecting dugongs

The Western Australian Marine Science Institution has been collecting data about dugongs off the coast of the Kimberley in Northern WA. We have been provided with the raw data from its sightings trips. In this project students will learn how dugong sightings are conducted, and develop the data-science skills needed to make the sightings data useful for analysis.
