Dugong Experience – A Rare Opportunity

  • i
A large marine mammal representing the once-diverse family Dugongidae, dugong is an endangered species inhabiting the waters of about 37 countries throughout the Indo-Pacific. Having been hunted for thousands of years for its oil and meat, most of its population are very close to extinction. Thus, the products derived from this species have been limited or banned in some regions. With a lifespan of over 70 years, this mammal can be witnessed through indulging in the Dugong Experience offered by Anantara Si kao, Thailand. This Krabi resort hotel which is renowned for being among the most excellent Krabi resorts, lets you journey to the Libong Island to experience close encounters with this fascinating aquatic mammal.
