Rare Dugong sighting at Merimbula!

A Dugong has been seen and filmed swimming around merimbula Lake and the Wharf over the last 3 days. Several people including Beth Richards and Hannah Cousins, new curator of the Merimbula Aquarium have been watching the Dugong and this photo is by Han Cousin. See the Merimbula News Weekly for a video.

Normally Dugongs are seen much further north in tropical waters, they feed on seagrasses, so hopefully it will be happy for a while in Merimbula Lake.
