Complete Title: 
Dugongs - respect and protect : dugong profile for range states in the Pacific Islands
Non IUCN Publication

Dugongs have high cultural value and are a valued source of food, medicine and artifacts and thus are an important species for coastal people. Dugongs also play a significant ecological role in maintaining coastal habitats. This publication will give an overview of the six dugong range states in the Pacific region and the measures they have in place to conserve and protect these pristine “ladies of the sea.” It will also highlight some of the events that have taken place since the Pacific Year of the Dugong was launched.
