PHUKET:-- The dolphin rescued from Phuket’s Nai Yang Beach last week has vomited plastic while in care at the Phuket Marine Biological Centre (PMBC) at Cape Panwa, marine biologists have revealed.

 

Marine biologists at the PMBC’s Endangered Species Unit have called for volunteers to help provide round-the-clock care for the dolphin as it is still experiencing breathing difficulties and suffering from fatigue.

 

“The dolphin cannot swim by itself and it will drown if there is no one to hold it,” marine mammal expert Dr Patcharaporn Kaewmong explained to The Phuket News today (Dec 3)

So very sad. What we are leaving for the next generation.

A polluted planet and Kieth Richards.

well plastic bag use is being discouraged for a day so I think we can safely say Thailand is getting serious on plastic bag use.

I viewed some scientist the other day on the DW German news channel.. he's devising a method of underwater bio-dome so humans can live under the oceans when the land becomes over populated...

I wonder where all the waste products will end up ??

Here we witness the consequences of our own irresponsible actions.

There is an easy solution, that will cost a bit more-go back to glass and steel-make all single use items biodegradable.  Of course, plastic composites would still be used to manufacture durable items.  Glass is recyclable and does not leach chemicals.
