The killing continues..now another threatened species…

These two pictures were taken yesterday in   Mannar. The  Dugong is rare and highly threatened marine mammal found in the Gulf of Mannar. They are being exploited for meat unfortunately.

They are believed to have been killed by using dynamite. One is a pregnant female and the other is a male. The National Aquatic Resources Agency ( NARA ) is doing the investigations.
