Indonesia is home to the largest coastline in Asia and one of the most biodiverse areas in the Ocean, including the number of marine mammal species that occupy the coastline and deeper sea either for food, call it home or use the island as a migration area to get to their next location.
Unfortunately, the marine mammals don't always swim off into the sunset as they tend to strand quite a bit along the coastline of Indonesia. The citizens that live along the coastline do not always know how to help the stranded marine mammals and if they try to help, they could be doing more harm than good.
The Government of Indonesia has been in the process of running trainings and workshops to help empower the local coastal communities to help when a stranding event occurs.
Check out the episode for more detail.
