Save The Dugong
Teaming up as a “Flying Squad”, mammal and animal care specialists from the Bali Safari & Marine Park and the Batang Dolphin Center flew off to Kanawa Island in the Komodo National Park last January to rescue a dying one-month-old dugong. Internationally known as a sea cow, the dugong was found with numerous scratches that were caused from hitting sharp coral and it was lacking mother’s milk. The mother of the Dugong was possibly dead but the squad is still trying to find her, searching the sea for eight hours every day, and they are still going to be in the area to supervise the baby dugong’s condition for a while.
