The US consulate in HCM City hosts a fair on the dugong on August 8 to raise awareness about protecting the marine mammal.

The fair will provide information about the animal which faces a very high risk of extinction in the country’s seas.

There will be a talk by the consulate’s Ray Nayler, film, a drawing, competition, and a quiz about the dugong, and a dancesport or contest based on songs about the dugong.

A game corner for children will feature painting, singing, and story-telling contests.

Souvenirs with a “Save the Dugong” logo chosen through a contest will be handed out to participants.
The fair opens at 1.45 pm on the eighth floor of Diamond Plaza in district1.-VNA
