HINATUAN, Surigao del Sur — The Hinatuan Bay is still home to the dugong (sea cow), an endangered species, but their number is fast dwindling and may be extinct here by 2005 because of mining, quarrying, illegal logging operations, illegal fishing and continued human onslaught, an Irish aqua-biologist said.
Byrne said unless the Philippine government imposes stricter measures in preserving and protecting the Dugong, “it would forever be lost to extinction.” There used to be Dugongs in the island of Siargao, Surigao del Norte.
Despite the threats, Dugongs in Hinatuan are seen frequently in the island barangay of Pangasinan, a 30-minute boat ride off the coast of Hinatuan and in Mahaba island, a 20-minute boat ride.
