Baby dugong ‘Marium’ being cared for in Trang

By The Thaiger





A baby dugong, which was found lost in Krabi two months ago, has been given the name ‘Marium’ and continues to be cared for at a dugong nursery in Trang.


The baby dugong, found on a Krabi beach, was taken back to its home area in Trang, southern Thailand, on April 30.

The female baby dugong is now six months old. She’s been in good care in Koh Libong in Trang. Her name means ‘beautiful woman of the sea’. The Dugong is one of Thailand ‘reserved animals’ and is considered a signature species for the region – a favourite for local fishermen and tourists.


Officials say that when the baby dugong is older and stronger, it will be released back to the wild in the open sea off Trang.
