PHUKET:-- The dolphin that was receiving care at the Phuket Marine Biological Centre (PMBC) after being recovered from Nai Yang Beach last Friday has died, and now marine life experts are casting doubt on whether or not the dolphin vomited plastic while in care earlier this week.

 

The dolphin passed away last night (Dec 5), one member of the PMBC veterinarian team who was caring for the dolphin told The Phuket News today.

 

“The actual cause of death has not yet been confirmed. We are working on verifying the cause of death now,” she said.
