This file picture shows Mariam being cared for by park officials and veterinarians from the Phuket Marine Biological Centre on Libong island, Trang province.
Last week, however, Thailand's Department of Marine and Coastal Resources (DMCR) posted on Facebook that the dugong was sick and refusing food.
The young creature became an internet hit after images of biologists embracing and feeding her with milk and grass spread across social media.
An autopsy showed that pieces of plastic caused obstructions in baby dugong's intestine tract, leading to inflammation and gas build-up. A team of veterinarians tried for hours to revive her, but to no avail; Marium was declared dead just after midnight on Saturday.
Fans could watch Marium on a live feed, receiving veterinary treatment, and being fed up to 15 times a day.

Marium is not the first marine animal to die or become injured from ocean plastics.
