Aug 2018 - A bit of hiatus in posting on Insta but here’s one! Purchased these enamel collar pins from a Malaysia-based illustrator J.H.! She made only 100 pcs per design! Support marine conservation! Got a bunch of them to gift friends! 😊❤️thanks @pandamellow19 #endangeredmarinelife #endangeredmarinespecies #hawksbillseaturtle #whaleshark #sawtoothfish #irrawaddydolphin #southchinasea #healthyoceanhealthyplanet #marinelife #keepclamandcarryon #marinebiologistatheart

The #IrrawaddyDolphin is a species of oceanic #dolphin found near sea coasts and in estuaries and rivers in parts of the Bay of Bengal and Southeast Asia.
Irrawaddy dolphins are capable of squirting streams of water that can reach up to 1.5 m; this distinct behavior has been known for herding fish into general area for hunting. They do this sometimes while #spyhopping and during feeding, apparently to expel water ingested during fish capture or possibly to herd fish.

The irrawaddy dolphin - These photos do not give these creatures justice but we had such an amazing experience this morning and we were super lucky to get to view them. We left well before sunrise this morning and headed into the Malampaya sound. After an extensive search we didn't find any dolphins. It's nature. But just as we came back to the river mouth and about to finish our tour, we found a pod of 4-5 dolphins feeding right at the mouth. With an estimated population of 40-50 individuals in the sound, it's amazing we got to see them at all and having such a great encounter •

#mangroves are an essential #ecosystem for coastal areas in the tropical and sub-tropical latitudes. They protect the shore from erosion, tides and storms and provide an essential habitat for juvenile fish, birds and other species. They are the oceans nurseries. Mangroves are threatened habitats and over 50% of #mangroveforest has been destroyed worldwide by developers. #goldenliontamarin #duskyshark #pantherchameleon #irrawaddydolphin #synchronicityearth #sustainablefashion #ecofashion #Gaiapainting #fabricoflifeseries @synchearth @thesustainableangle @canopyplanet @arizona_muse @alisonsudol

The Irrawaddy Dolphin is an important part of its home waters of Mekong River, where it helps to support ecotourism. Unfortunately this cute is listed as endangered and there are only expected to be 92 of them left. -

When I watched Dolphin in Bali, I took a boat ride into the ocean and witnessed a dolphin being sliced by the boat engine propeller and 2 more floating death. The image is still fresh in my memory and I swear that I won’t go and see that lovely creature again. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But, I’m still a huge fan of it and with only 90 fresh water Dolphin left in Cambodia, I need to see them before they go extinct🤞
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I make my research online about Irrawaddy Dolphin and found out that I can kayak to see them with Sorya Kayaking instead of taking risk hurting them with the boat engine propeller; at most, I can only hurt them with my paddle and it can overturn my Kayak. Kayak until koyak😬

In Banlung, there is this nice lake. In Kratie, it’s possible to hire a boat and see the Irrawaddy freshwater dolphins. These dolphins are becoming endangered, hopefully responsible ecotourism can help preserve them. I couldn’t really capture a good picture of them. #cambodia #robnicbackpack #ASEANtour #Kratie #Banlung #irrawaddydolphin #yeaklaom

Spending a morning watching the Irrawaddy Dolphins in the Mekong in Cambodia is every dolphin lovers dream. To find out more about these creatures check out the WWF page http://cambodia.panda.org/projects_and_reports/mekong_dolphins/

RIVER DOLPHINS, UNDERWATER ISLANDS & TEMPLE MONKEYS
Yesterday we went out on the giant Mekong, looking for dolphins. Even though I’ve seen images of this mighty river, it was unreal how large it was when we got on it. There are thousands of islands that get covered each year by the waters. I have never seen trees half-submerged in the middle of a strongly flowing river.
The Irrawaddy river dolphins are endangered here, like the elephants. And like the elephants, many were killed during the Khmer Rouge - the dolphins used for their oil.
From the boat, we saw a pod swimming around, and I wondered what it’s like for them - the motor boats, plastic bottles and us humans looking for them. Like they’re supposed to save us in some way. 🧞‍♂️🐬🧞‍♂️ After the river, we stopped at a forest temple with 361 steps and many more mosquitoes.

When we walked back down the steps, I heard the contagious laughter of monks. They were laughing at the monkeys taking a bath. I have to say, after having several run-ins with monkeys over the years, these seemed much nicer. 😂 (video above by @touk_keo )

We were also met by kittens - one who followed us down the steps without us even noticing at first. Tiny baby monkeys and tiny baby kittens - apparently they play together, the monks told us. 🙈🐱

Irrawaddy dolphins are found in coastal areas in South and Southeast Asia, and in three rivers: the Ayeyarwady (Myanmar), the Mahakam (Indonesian Borneo) and the #Mekong. The Irrawaddy dolphin is also regarded as a sacred animal by both Khmer and Lao people. Classified as #Endangered, it went extinct in Laos in 2016. In 2018, the WWF announce that the population in the Mekong River increased for the first time.
