Pupils meet Dolphin Island's new calf

Resorts World Sentosa's Dolphin Island gave a group of lucky schoolchildren a chance to see its latest addition.

Yesterday, 40 pupils from Kranji Primary School who were on a dolphin-education programme were taken to see a dolphin calf swimming with its mother Tian Tang in the lagoon.

The calf was born on Dec 17 and is still being nursed by its mother.

Participants of the attraction's dolphin interaction programme have until June 30 to come up with a name for the calf.

Dolphin Island also announced the start of its Save The Irrawaddy Dolphin Project, which begins this month in Thailand.

Researchers and officials from Dolphin Island, Chulalongkorn University Thailand and Thailand's Department of Marine and Coastal Resources will conduct a population assessment of the dolphins in the Songkhla Lake, which has suffered environmental degradation, affecting its dolphin population.
