Wild dolphin sightings in March 2016

Even though Singapore is one of the world's busiest ports, our waters are home to amazing marine life including dolphins!
Four adult dolphins were spotted off Pasir Panjang Container 33 on 25 Mar 2016. Thanks to Chng Joseph, master of tug boat TG47 for capturing and sharing a video of them.

On 6 Mar 2016, KayakAsia Sentosa shared this video of dolphins seen between Lazarus and St. John's Island while kayaking.

More about Singapore's dolphins.

It's been a while that I compiled sightings of dolphins and sea turtles!

What gives me a warm fuzzy feeling is not only knowing that there are wild dolphins in Singapore, but also that there are kind people at sea who look out and share their sightings!

Thank you to everyone who report sightings of special marine creatures such as dolphins and sea turtles.

How can we help protect our sea turtles and dolphins?
  • Stop littering.
  • Stop mass balloon releases. 

Our friend Beverly in California snapped this photo of a balloon near a white sided dolphin while out on a wildlife...

Balloons and soft plastic kill sea turtles, slowly and painfully. Balloons, plastic bags, nylon rope, styrofoam are swallowed by sea turtles which mistake these for jellyfish. One report found that sea turtles are selectively preferring to eat soft plastics over other types of rubbish.
An exploded balloon looks very much like a jellyfish!
This was seen at Cyrene Reef.
