Video of fishermen rescuing beached dolphin goes viral

A heart warming video of two guys, believed to be fishermen, rescuing a beached dolphin on mainland Penang, believed to be near the RMAF base has gone viral.

It makes you wonder how the poor thing got stranded on land in the first place.

The water in that area is not the clearest or cleanest.

This site is believed to be about a kilometre or two away from Pantai Bersih, where the carcass of a dolphin was found on the shore in 2012.

For saving this creature, these two guys have been hailed as unsung heroes and guardians of the sea. All of us need to play our part in safeguarding the treasures of the deep.

Hopefully the population of dolphin around Penang can increase. But fishermen could later turn against the dolphins if the dolphins compete with them for fish?

God provides food for all – mankind, plant & animal kingdom. It’s human greed that destroys this divine generosity. Even in the wild, food chain seldom goes haywire.

The bubble tea trend is showing no signs of stopping just yet, with new outlets and brands popping up in various neighbourhood shop lots and malls on a nearly weekly basis. While various experts have already chimed in with concerns over the effects consuming bubble tea may have on the health of bubble tea fans, one little girl found out for herself that bubble tea is best taken in moderation.

Bubble Tea culture a hype that cannot sustain beyond 6 months?
Nagore Lane now filled with bubble tea, and environmentalists should now check if disposed plastic is choking the lanes (if not your children intestines)or make their way to the sea ocean .

Here’s How at Least 74,000 Microplastic Particles End Up in Your Diet in a Single Year

Once microplastics enter the gut, they could release toxic substances causing oxidative stress or even cancer, according to the researchers. Particles small enough could be taken up by cells in the lungs and gut; while larger ones might be absorbed in the digestive tract.

Cam you explain why only ikan kerapu is poisoned to death in the Penang incident?

Plausible factors include
– Heavy metal poisoning, especially here.
– Other poisoning from any of the thousands of industrial chemicals, poisonous algae or poisonous jellyfish (the last 2 promoted by effluents.

Plastic is unlikely to trouble these smart creatures, apart from micro-particles that also pollute all human food and water.

Penang Forum can start producing non plastic straws. Besides can save the environment, can also generate fund to sustain its friendly causes. Khoo Salman can joint venture with CAP? Effective action is louder than frustrating protests.

If only the dolphin can talk: “TQ”
Hope to see many more of such ‘rescue’ videos to encourage acts of kindness to Nature.

Anil, pls take off my comment if it is selectively deemed awaiting moderation. Same for all my comments in ‘lock down’. Just do it, it’s your blog.

IMO, even 2/day/article is plenty, considering that (a) it is free (b) it requires moderation in view of “sensitive issues”, archaic laws on libel, etc., all applied selectively (c) some visitors seem incapable of concise expression.

Anil, thanks for your clarification. I have no problem with the limits. I have to choose what to comment as most urgent for the day. And I will ignore the shrieker & insane he-he-he to make full use of the limit at the expense of defending against lying personal attacks.

I will expose hypocrisy at those claiming high moral ground and on the other hand doing something fishy like oppose highways but enjoy or regularly use the highway as it is the better option
