Dead Dugong (Dugong dugon) found on the beach somewhere along the Johor east coast, in Tenggaroh area. MareCet has informed the authorities and has requested to participate in any post-mortem that may take place. We hope that we will be able to work together with them on this. This Dugong was a male, and judging from the many scratches on its back, was probably not a young animal. We are saddened by this, as this is the second dead Dugong in 4 months from within the small Johor east coast population.
