Abstract: Dugongs are marine mammals which can grow to about three metres in length and weigh as much as 400 kilograms. They are the only marine mammals that live mainly on plants. They graze on seagrasses which form meadows in sheltered coastal waters. Although the animals are slow moving, on occasion they travel considerable distances to other areas. Within the zoning area dugongs are known to occur in Port Clinton.
