India: mission to save the dugong


The government of India‘s southern Tamil Nadu state announced the country’s first-ever conservation reserve for the dugong last year. 

Situated in the Palk Bay area of the Gulf of Mannar, the reserve not only aims to protect the marine mammal against poaching and harmful fishing practices, but may also help to shield the coastline from the worst impacts of climate change.

Dugongs, the only herbivorous sea mammal in the world, are classified as vulnerable 

by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).
