Dolphin’s daring adventure ends swimmingly with a river rescue in Phuket

The authorities successfully rescued a misplaced bottlenose dolphin that had ventured into the Tha Chin River within the Ratsada district of Phuket.
Residents, anglers, and fishermen within the district spotted the dolphin swimming in Tha Chin River near Koh Sire Bridge at 8am right now and reported it to the Sireetarn Marine Endangered Animals Rescue Centre.
Residents urged the relevant authorities to hurry to the scene as they were worried that the river was not fit for the mammal’s habitat because the brackish water may harm the dolphin. Moreover, many anglers fish alongside the route and various other boats travel along the river which was harmful for the animal.
Upon closer examination, experts had been able to establish the stranded dolphin as a bottlenose dolphin, measuring roughly 1 meter in length, and that it had probably become separated from its group.
The authorities visited the river to rescue the dolphin but they initially bumped into issue and could not get close to it. So, there was a change of plan from capturing the dolphin to guiding it again into the sea. Three officers obtained into a boat and successfully led the dolphin towards the open waters.
The bottlenose dolphin in Thailand is named the Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphin, also called Tursiops aduncus, which is smaller than the frequent bottlenose dolphin. The provinces in Thailand where the bottlenose dolphins are discovered the most are Ranong, Phang Nga, and Phuket.
The discovery of bottlenose dolphins within the Gulf of Thailand and other parts of the nation is very rare, however two bottlenose dolphins had been seen in the Bang Pakong River in Chachoengsao province near Bangkok in January.
Last month, seven to 10 bottlenose dolphins were spotted near Koh Khao Yai in Satun province in the southern region of Thailand. Satun is a perfect destination to see bottlenose dolphins and different species. Withheld where the dolphins at all times go to are Koh Khao Yai, Koh Phetra, and close to Che Bi Lang Canal..
