Cambodia has welcomed two newborn Irrawaddy dolphins so far this year, the country’s Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF) said in a news release on Tuesday (April 18).

The second dolphin calf was spotted on April 15 while swimming with a group of adult dolphins, as the first one was recorded on March 1. Both calves were found at the Kampi dolphin pool in northeastern Kratie province.

According to the news release, six dolphin calves were registered last year, and the same number was also reported in 2021.

World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in Cambodia congratulated the joint efforts of the MAFF’s Fisheries Administration and WWF for this important second new record of the Mekong Irrawaddy dolphin calf in 2023.
