More footage of dolphins in Penang


Here is video footage of what looks like about a dozen dolphins frolicking not far from the Penang Bridge.

If only we can clean up our surrounding waters, what wonders lie in wait for us, especially the Angels of the Deep.

Second, tight controls are needed on property development around the coast.

Third, strict controls and penalties imposed on ships discharging toxic waste into the sea.

And finally, carefully study any land reclamation to ensure it doesn’t pollute the waters or harm marine life.

I recall vividly one very bright sunny afternoon in late September when I was seated in the veranda of my home, to see dolphins frolicking and making big splashes in the water. There were 5 of them, right in the middle of the sea and they were flipping into… Read more »


Dolphins free to roam in the sea is less stressful than those in captivity.
Penang can create a natural habitat to rival Spore’s Pink Dolphins in captivity/showcase at Sentosa.
It’s time for LGE and team to crack their grey cells to support these dolphins survival and regular visits so that tourist get to witness heritage and nature – a combo that sure jom meletup !
