Freshwater Dolphin Day

October 24

www.lovingmyplanet.com
The 24th of October is International Freshwater Dolphin Day, a day in the Greater Mekong to celebrate the Irrawaddy dolphin as a unique part of Cambodia’s biological heritage and think carefully about how we can all help to conserve it for future generations.

In Cambodia, the Irrawaddy dolphin is regarded as a sacred animal, and folk stories tell of its origin as a woman who, fearing disgrace, threw herself into the river, only to return as a dolphin.
