According to the Mandalay Region Department of Fisheries, Irrawaddy dolphins are watched and protected attentively as they are endangered species and currently, they are inhabiting the area of Seinpangon Village, Madaya Township and the Mingun area.
There were also appointments to come and see Irrawaddy dolphins and the net-fishing tradition even though it was not a seasonal time during August last year. — TWA/TRKM
