Abstract: A dead dugong (Dugong dugon)was found in the Yelin Bay of Dongjiao Town,Wenchang City,Hainan Province on June 22,2008. Since sea grass resources are abundant in Yelin Bay and Gaolong Bay,the emergence of dugong carcass can suggested that this species distributes in the coastal waters of Hainan in some degree. Through examining its external body and internal anatomy condition,it was discovered that the dugong had a large area of bruising of the skin,and fractured ribs and vertebrae. These injuries are characteristic of damage due to some type of machine and the cause of death of this dugong was probably due to collision with a boat.
