Based in Johannesburg, the Endangered Wildlife Trust focuses on conservation of the region’s threatened species and ecosystems. This ad spotlights the plight of the dugong, a threatened ocean species also known as the sea cow. Cousin to the manatee, dugongs graze on sea grasses in the shallow parts of the Indian and western Pacific oceans. Hunters target them for meat, oil, skin, bones, and teeth, rapidly destroying their population.
