One of the most popular attractions in St. Vincent and the Grenadines are the Pitons, which is a dugong. Grand Bay is home to the largest number of these dugongs. These animals were brought from Australia to the island about fifty years ago. They are not social and they have been around for a while. However, the locals do take care of them, as they are very important to them. Visitors to St. Vincent and the Grenadines can enjoy watching the dugongs perform many tricks, including running on the beach and diving into the sea.
