The coastal indigenous tribes regarded the dugong with a very high economic and social value as it provided a rare and nutritious source of meat. Throughout times in history, the dugong has been a popular mythological animal. We agree that is a beautifully unique creature of the seas and resembles a walrus, whale, but its closest relative is the elephant.
