Box jelly fish awareness and prevention presentation on Koh Phangan

Box jelly fish awareness and prevention presentation on Koh Phangan

Yesterday evening I conducted 'Box jelly fish awareness and prevention presentation on Koh Phangan' at 'Sweet Cafe' in Thong Sala for around 40 to 50 dive professionals. This was a great turn out and it was a really captive audience.

The Thai box jelly fish work group has been multiple times on Koh Phangan, but they only talked to Thai institutions and groups. This was the first time that this kind of information was offered to Western groups on Koh Phangan and this was only to members of the dive community.

The presentation was as already mentioned about awareness and prevention and it seemed that listening to the feedback, the information provided hit home and hopefully the awareness has been raised and prevention measures will be implemented.

Most of the dive centers on Koh Phangan had staff at the presentation and some came with a big group.
It seems the presentation was well received and with a big group like this, it seems that the interest is definitely out there.

Thanks to all the members of the Koh Phangan dive industry that showed up, it's great to see the numbers of attendants like this and thanks to Heike at Haad Yao Divers on Koh Phangan who organized the presentation and last but not least, thanks to 'Sweet Cafe' fr opening your doors after hours and having us as guests.

If you know anymore people or organizations who are interested in this kind of presentation about box jellyfish on Koh Phangan, please get in touch with me.
