An exceptionally close encounter with one of most gentlest of mammals. Kat the Dugong is a resident of the Cocos (Keeling) Islands. He has been here, by himself, for over 10 years. According to the experts, he holds the record for the longest swim from any known mainland dugong herd.
It would be lovely to obtain DNA samples to find out where he actually came from. However the thought of stressing this beautiful boy is simply out of the question.
