Sirenia include all manatees and dugongs. There are four living species of sirenia:

  • Dugong
  • West African manatee
  • Amazonian manatee
  • West Indian manatee.

A fifth known sirenia species, the Stellar sea cow, went extinct in 1768 just 27 years after humans discovered the animal that used to inhabit the Arctic region.
