DUGONG CALV­ING, MORETON BAY

Australian Geographic - - Wild Australia -

Moreton Bay Ma­rine Park is home to up to 600 dugongs. Calves are born in Septem­ber and Oc­to­ber each year, although dugongs can be spot­ted in the wa­ters here year-round by lucky ob­servers. The banks of Moreton Is­land, 40km from Bris­bane, are one place from where to spy graz­ing sea cows, but your best bet may be on an or­gan­ised wildlife tour, such as the Ma­rine Dis­cov­ery Cruise of­fered by Tan­ga­looma Is­land Re­sort.
