Not many people know much about them. They are big but not easily sighted, common yet endangered, and very shy. They are said to be the most common marine mammal in the inshore waters of northern Australia but are now critically endangered in some areas of South East Queensland. These are only two of the many facts that we are hoping to hear from Dr Janet Lanyon, Marine Vertebrate Ecology Research Group, School of Biological studies, University of Queensland when she gives a lecture about Dugong breeding, Movements and population connectivity in South East Queensland.
