local.seafdecaqd.extractA stranded baby dugong that was recently rescued by a team from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) will remain at the Manila Ocean Park while its condition is being monitored, an official said yesterday. Director Theresa Mundita Lim of the Biodiversity Management Bureau (BMB), an attached agency of the DENR, said the dugong, named “Binu,†will be kept in a facility of the Ocean Park for six weeks which they said is the critical period for the rescued seacow. The dugong - a critically endangered species - will be monitored at the Ocean Park, which is referred to as a marine center for rescued species. It is 1.06 meters long and weighs 18 kilos but would have to reach 25 kilos, which is its ideal weight, she said.en
