Highlights

Dugong

The Dugong, called the mermaid model, is raised in only two aquariums around the world. The only place where the dugong can be found in captivity in Asia is at Toba Aquarium. Our dugong, nicknamed Serena, was discovered and protected in the Philippines in its infancy. Thanks to the loving care from its keepers, Serena grew up rapidly and healthy. Now, over 30 years later, she breaks the world record for the longest time that a Dugong has been cared for in captivity. Come visit Serena, our gentle chubby friend who consumes up to 30 kilograms of seagrasses a day!
