"My old people would hunt dugong from bark canoes and spears. They would hunt them during the full moon so they could seem their outline through the water. Now days we use a metal boat with a motor. This makes it much easier. We do not hunt them as much as we used to because there are fewer of them. We do not want to wipe them out. Because when they are gone they are gone for ever. I miss eating their rich flesh better then beef. We have learned to do without."
