One Irrawaddy dolphin was found habiting the Ayeyawady River, near Nandaw Kyaung village, Pwintbyu township in Magway region on 8 June 2021, said Ko Moe Nan Wai, a local villager from Nandaw Kyaung village.
The local villagers went to the scene because they wanted to see the dolphin.
“One of the fishermen found a dolphin which is habiting Ayeyawady River near our village. It has been habiting there for three or four days already. We have never seen or heard about the dolphins that are habiting near our village. We are really amazed when we see the dolphin ourselves. But, we do not see the dolphin playing in the water,” said a fisherman from the village.
The Fisheries Department is implementing the Irrawaddy Dolphin Conservation Project in cooperation with the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), Myanmar Police Force, Myanmar Maritime Police, the local fishermen and the CSO team in order to reduce the extinction of Irrawaddy dolphin in Myanmar. — Ye Win Naing (NyaungU)/GNLM
