US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — In the Gulf of Thailand, Thai fishermen captured rare pink dolphins on video. According to scientists, marine mammals have become much bolder in the absence of boats with tourists.
Three pink dolphins swam to a fishing boat near the island of Phangan in southeast Thailand.
The spotted pink dolphins are a subspecies of the Chinese dolphin (lat. Sousa chinensis) and are listed as vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. In the Gulf of Thailand, about 150 individuals live.
According to experts, dolphins began to feel more comfortable in conditions of stopping tourism and reducing the number of pleasure boats. As a result, mammals were more likely to swim to the islands.
