Box jelly fish awareness and prevention presentation for 100 Degrees East dive center on Koh Samui

Today it was time for a box jelly fish awareness and prevention presentation for 100 Degrees East dive center on Koh Samui. All their English speaking staff attended the presentation and once more I had an attentive and inquisitive audience, who had the opportunity to find out more about the history of box jelly fish in Thailand and specifically in the Samui archipelago.
After two presentations during the day time yesterday for Miskawaan villa rental in Maenam and a presentation in the early evening for members of the Koh Samui dive community during which I reached 46 people, now another 10 can be added with this presentation today.

It's important to reach out and spread the word about box jelly fish awareness and prevention and make people aware of the correct procedures to follow in case they have to deal with box jelly fish injuries. Due to the fast working venom of the box jelly fish, it's important to know what to do without wasting time, since seconds can count in box jelly fish injuries. 

The importance of having copious amounts of vinegar and people trained in CPR available at an accident are ital to survival of the victim. The presentation also covers the importance of stinger nets and vinegar poles on beaches and the use of stinger protective clothing, like stinger suits.

Thanks to 100 Degrees East for having me and to the staff for taking the time out to join the presentation. It was my pleasure and I hope that you learned something more about box jelly fish.

If you would like to have a box jelly fish awareness and prevention presentation for your staff or company, please contact me for more information.
