An Orphan Baby Girl Dugong Needs a Warm Hug

An orphan baby Dugong calms down in the arms of a marine biologist

What make world exciting recently is that Thailand Marine biologists found a lonely orphan baby girl of Dugong nearby Phuket water.

When she saw marine biologists, the 5 months orphan girl approached the scientists. She hugs one of scientists who she taught of her mother.

Frightening fact that 200 Dugong left only in Thailands, and similar trend in other South East Asian countries. Dugong Population near extinct

Dugong (Dugong dugon) in South East Asia similar to Manatee (Trichechus sp) in America. They are also known as “sea cow.”

In fairy tales, they are called as mermaid or queen of sea or “putri duyung” in many countries.

I myself may found Dugong in the fisherman markets in South East Asian Countries about 30 years ago.

Marine biologists are milking orphan baby dugong

Governments in South East countries included Dugong as endangered species around 15 years ago or later. The countries are:
- Thailand
- Philippine
- Malaysia
- Indonesia
- Vietnam

They are not only endangered species, but International Union of Conservation for Nature considered Dugong as “vulnerable” species, almost disappear from earth.

Baby girl Dugong is approaching a biologist

The extinct is not due to commercial hunting for meat, skin or bones. Man activities are the main reasons of Dugong population to deplete.

Human activities destroyed food sources and habitat of this critters. The activities include:
- Fishing vessels with their fuel contaminated Dugong’s habitat
- Fishing tools (nets, cages, trawl, grates) destroyed sea grass beds as source of foods.
- Mining cause “sediment build up” and degrading marine habitat.


Have you seen Dugongs or Manatees in the nature?
