According to the department, Marium was chased last week by a male dugong during the mating season, resulting in bruises.

Marium was taken under the care of veterinarians in the sea off Libong Island and was trained to improve survival skills in the natural habitat.

"Everyone is sad about her passing, but this is an issue that must be urgently resolved", officials from the Department of Marine and Coastal Resources in Thailand said on Facebook.

An orphaned baby dugong that attained celebrity status in Thailand has died with plastic waste lining its stomach, prompting a surge of mourning on the internet.

Photos of marine biologists embracing and feeding her with milk and sea grass went viral all over the globe after being uploaded to social media.

"We could partially treat the respiratory infection but the obstruction of plastic rubbish... could not be cured", she said in the post, calling for the young animal's death to serve as a lesson.

A sick baby dugong beloved in Thailand has died with bits of plastic in her stomach, officials reported Saturday. For months, veterinarians and volunteers would paddle out to her in canoes, feeding her multiple times a day and giving checkups, reports The Associated Press. "It's nearly like the way she would tuck under her mother".

Last year, a pilot whale in Thailand died after eating more than 80 plastic bags. A graphic video of marine biologists removing a plastic straw from a sea turtle's nose sparked internet outrage in 2017.

Scientists say some 8 million metric tons of plastic is entering the ocean every year.

"The amount of plastic found in this area, known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, is 'increasing exponentially, ' according to the surveyors, who used two planes and 18 boats to assess the ocean pollution", Mooney continued.

The dugong is a species of marine mammal similar to the American manatee and can grow to about 11 feet in length. They're listed as vulnerable on the International Union for Conservation of Nature's list of threatened species.

The animal died Saturday a week after being found ill and refusing to eat.

Regularly updated videos, including of her being sung to tenderly, allowed Marium's fans to keep up with her progress, and she became a symbol of Thailand's conservation efforts.

He said: "Her death will remind Thais and people all over the world not to dispose trash into the oceans".
