Students to help protect sea cows
MetadataShow full item record
Dugongs, also known as “sea cows” once grazed in the thousands on the seabed off the Philippines. In order to raise awareness on the conservation and protection of Dugong (Dugong dugon), an awareness campaign was conducted at Northern Iloilo Polytechnic State College (NIPSC) Concepcion Campus, Concepcion Iloilo, recently. This is the first awareness campaign to protect and conserve the species of Dugong in the region. The said activity equipped the students with adequate knowledge on the importance and distribution of Dugong (Dugong dugon) as well as raise awareness in the conservation and protection of sirenian species.
