Our Ongoing Campaign to Protect Nature
Economic relief for 'cooperative fishermen' during COVID-19 travel restrictions
Selling dolphin sculptures and other souvenirs, handcrafted by 'Cooperative Fishermen' who lived and fished with dolphins for their whole lives. The proceeds are used to support them during the pandemic, create alternative income to discourage electric fishing and to fund other conservation activities.
Operation NO Release: removing invasive fish species from Irrawaddy river
Working with the Department of Fishery, Myanmar to spread awareness on social media about the dangers of invasive species to aquarium owners and fish keepers with an aim of discouraging them from releasing imported fish species into natural habitats. Aid fishermen to destroy them when caught as a bycatch.
Promoting and selling branded merchandise to encourage plastic-free lifestyle choices
Proudly show to your friends and colleagues that you are a responsible Irrawaddy dolphin protecter by using these dolphin-branded plastic-free items . All the proceeds from this fundraising sale will be used to fund impactful educational programs, field survey, or ground conservation activities.
Researching 'Cooperative Fishing' culture between dolphins and fishermen
This unique culture can only be found in the freshwater population in the Irrawaddy river in Myanmar and is rarely studied before. We are currently conducting research by collecting primary data from the cooperative fishermen. This research project is funded by the Young Southeast Asian Leadership Institute (YSEALI) and Save Philippines Sea (SPH)
