survey of Mangrove Habitats in Yemen
PERSGA conducted a mangrove survey during the last April-May 2009 in cooperation with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in Yemen. A joined PERSGA and EPA research team surveyed around 25 mangrove sites located along the Red Sea coastal strip of the country form Midi in the north to Bab-el-Mandab in the south. The survey was conducted in the framework of the Regional Regular Mangrove Assessment Program run by PERSGA. The survey findings will be integrated into the upcoming Regional Mangrove Status Report of the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden.
