Box jellyfish awareness presentations for Koh Samui hotel staff

After last weeks involvement in Shark Guardian presentations on Koh Samui, early this week it was time for presentations about box jellyfish for hotel staff on Koh Samui.

An extensive blog post about these two presentations can be found here on my Koh Samui info and weather blog.

Dr. Lakkana one of the few box jelly fish experts in Thailand held the two presentations and she was sponsored by the BOE (Bureau of Epidemiology).
The presentations were organized by me on behalf of the Koh Samui chapter of the THA (Thai Hotel Association).

Besides the presentation, there was also basic CPR training with staff of the Bangkok-Samui hospital.

Hopefully this will be the start of more awareness and prevention around the island!
