A baby dugong is Thailand’s ‘sweetheart’ after video goes viral

The dugong was found swimming alone in Thailand's southern Krabi province and conservationists suspect she was an orphan. She may soon have a live video feed dedicated to her.
An orphaned baby dugong named Marium has swum her way into hearts across Thailand after a video of her hugging her human helper went viral. Thailand’s Department of Marine and Coastal Resources (DMCR) has called her the “nation’s sweetheart”.
The dInternational Union of Conservation for Nature has listed the dugongs, a type of sea cow that is found in Thailand’s waters, as “vulnerable”, and say they’re at a high risk of extinction.

An online appeal raised enough money from Marium’s fans to pay for her care for a whole year. Next, there’s going to be a video live-stream of her daily activities
