PHUKET: Marine life experts took one of the dolphins found stranded on mud in Pha Khlok yesterday into care today (Jan 22), while the search continued for the smaller male dolphin believed to be the dolphin’s offspring.

 

Officers of the Department of Marine and Coastal Resources (DMCR) this morning took to the water to monitor any progress made by the two dolphins after they were rescued from stranding by local villagers yesterday.

 

However, after two hours of searching, the marine life experts were able to find only the two-metre-long female dolphin, seemingly unwell and swimming slowly.
