Breaking News: Killer Whale spotted off Phuket beach

The Orca or Killer Whales can be found in all oceans, from Arctic and Antarctic regions to tropical seas. Killer whales are highly social; some populations are composed of matrilineal family groups which are the most stable of any animal species, but there is only one single Orca seen in the picture.

Suchart Ratthanareungsi, Director of the Phuket Marine Biological Centre (PMBC) said, “It is surprising news that an Orca appeared in Phuket waters. It is now possible that they will be around Thailand's waters more often.

“After we have checked on more details we will make a record of this sighting and make plans to protect them.”

More details to follow.
