Dugong deaths 'ecological disaster'

"The dredging and blasting of seabed and reefs at JPP would lead to a 50km² ‘marine deadzone’ (2,400 times Subiaco oval) according to government reports"
"Dugongs travel up and down the Peninsula and are likely to feed on all the patches of seagrass that lie off the coast. We don’t know how taking out a massive area in the middle would affect them but the article below gives us some clues."
