PHUKET:-- The dolphin that was receiving care at the Phuket Marine Biological Centre (PMBC) after being recovered from Nai Yang Beach last Friday has died, and now marine life experts are casting doubt on whether or not the dolphin vomited plastic while in care earlier this week.

 

The dolphin passed away last night (Dec 5), one member of the PMBC veterinarian team who was caring for the dolphin told The Phuket News today.

 

“The actual cause of death has not yet been confirmed. We are working on verifying the cause of death now,” she said.

I'm sure an autopsy will reveal a stomach full of plastic. 

Yes probably so.in Tesco yesterday and the bags were flying out as usual.could do with some training of the staff and thinking about it they probably have but that was the end of it.thailand will never change its lazy and ignorant,selfish ways of pollution of the air,sea,land and even noise.

"experts are casting doubt on whether or not the dolphin vomited plastic while in care earlier this week" can someone explain this, to me it either did, or didn't, and how was it first reported that it did, can't these "experts" tell the difference between plastic or normal vomit.

I would love to see one of the larger shopping outlets like Big C, CP or Tesco Lotus make the very first bold move in saying all shopping will be packed into non-plastic bags from the start of 2019... 

making available cloth bags which can be re-used, or paper bags for customers... 

also seeing them put pressure on the suppliers to cut the amount of plastic packaging siting maybe they will look for alternative "greener" suppliers if changes are not made to them!!

Now that would be remarkable, and the best marketing ever  !!!
