They are called marine mammals, more specifically cetaceans (whales, dolphins) rather than manatees or dugongs, or semi-aquatic mammals such as seals, sea lions, and otters.
Whales, Dolphins, Porpoise, Dugongs. there are many other marine mamas. For a list of them go to the related link (Marine Mammals) below.

There are four main groups of marine mammals. They are cetaceans which include whales and dolphins, pinnipeds which includes seals and sea lions, sirenians which are manatees and dugongs, and fissipeds which are polar bears and two species of otters.
Yes. Dugongs are vertebrates.
Manatees (and the related SW Pacific dugongs) live alongside other mammals, though do not generally interact with them. Where there is competition for resources, manatees generally will seek new living areas. (see related link)
Dugongs have lungs and don't have gills.
Dugongs are found in Australia.
Dugongs live in estuaries.
Dugongs migrate on a yearly basis
They live in waters mainly of the Indian Ocean, Red Sea, and southwest Pacific Ocean. They are herbivore marine mammals. Their species is vulnerable which is near to become endagered.
Dugongs are tagged with tracking devices, this is done for that scientists can monitor their population and keep tract of the dugongs
There is an organisation that is called Dugongs Reach-out.
Dugongs have lots of fat in their backs so when a preditor approaches the simply turn their back and believe it or not but dugongs are actually fast
how do dugongs communicate with other animals and humans
A dugongs muzzle is used to help it find its food. Dugongs eat seagrass and the muzzle digs furrows in the seafloor to uproot the seagrass.
We can protect them by Less water pollution, Lack of fishing in the ocean, Reduce the number of Boats we send out and less flesh eating mammals we have in the ocean.

All mammals feed their young on milk. this is the defining characteristic of a mammal, as no other group in the animal kingdom has this trait. Mammals include placental mammals (e.g. humans, rodents, stock animals, domestic pets, bears, wild canines and large cats, rabbits and hares, marine mammals such as whales, dolphins, dugongs, etc); marsupials (e.g. kangaroos, koalas, wombats, bandicoots, Tasmanian devils, etc); and monotremes (the egg-laying mammals, which include just the platypus and echidna).
The Three-toed Sloth has 9 Cervical vertebrae, while the Two-toed Sloth and Manatee have 6. Dugongs, cousins of the manatee appear to still have 7 vertebrae.
One of the Dugongs adaptations is it's liver, it removes all of the salt from the plants that it consumes.
Manatees are very similar to dugongs. However there is one very distinct difference, a dugongs tail is shaped like the flukes of a whale and the manatees is shaped more rounded like a paddle.
No, the dugongs require warmer water and could not survive in the bitter cold of Antarctica.
Do not hunt them
