    Body of Female Dolphin washed up on Wongamart Beach.
    A sad story now from Wongamart Beach behind the Long Beach Hotel in Naklua. Just before dusk on Thursday, Police were alerted to the discovery of a washed-up female dolphin which had unfortunately lost its life. Veterinary Officers arrived and identified the corpse as an Irrawaddy Dolphin which is commonly found near coasts and in estuaries in parts of south-east Asia. Although sometimes called the Irrawaddy River Dolphin, it is not a true river dolphin but an oceanic dolphin that lives near coasts and enters rivers. Its range extends from the Bay of Bengal to New Guinea and northern Australia. The corpse was removed and taken to the Marine Biology Unit in Sattahip where a full Autopsy will be undertaken to determine the exact cause of death. It is thought that the Dolphin became detached from a group and may have became trapped by fishermen’s nets and discarded by the fishermen when they retrieved their nets.
