A dead dugong was found beached near an estuary on Libong Island in Thailand’s southern province of Trang on Sunday morning.

 

The two fishermen from Ban Nam Robin Tambon Bangsak, who found the dead animal, immediately alerted the Marine and Coastal Resources Regional Office which dispatched a team of officials to investigate.

 

The dead dugong was measured at about 1.5 metres and weighed about 50kgs, but it was already so badly decomposed that officials could not determine its gender or cause of death.

Really? Plastic doesn't decompose, that's the problem. So was it's stomach full of plastic or not?

 

Quote from the turtle story below:

 

"Officials found no traces of wounds or injuries on the shell of the turtle and suspect that it died after it had swallowed plastic waste."
