Thailand’s ’sweetheart’ dugong dies with plastic in stomach

An orphaned eight-month-old dugong, made famous after it was rescued earlier this year in Thailand, has died on Saturday with a stomach infection. The animal named Mariam’s infection was exacerbated by bits of plastic lining her stomach. There are only a few hundred of the sea mammals left in Thailand.

Plastic from Asians. 8 of 10 rivers that contain the most plastic are in Asia the other 2 are in Afrika
