At the Phuket Marine Biological Centre (PMBC) veterinarians and volunteers are now taking care of the dolphin 24 hours a day by helping to support it in the water.

Veterinarian Patcharapohn Kaewmong, who is currently taking care of the dolphin says, “the dolphin is now in critical condition. It has been infected and has some wounds on its fin. It is weak and cannot swim by itself.”

“We need staff members and volunteers to support it in the water.”

“We have given some antibiotic medicine and are using laser technology to assist in the treatment. We are trying our best to save this little dolphin.”

The PMBC has also called for volunteers to help support the dolphin in water during its treatment. Anyone interested please contact www.facebook.com/thaiwhales/
