DAN's Jellyfish Investigation : Can You Help?

There has been an increase in reported serious jellyfish stings in Thailand, and possibly elsewhere in Asia. Since mentioning our jellyfish investigation we have received several great photos of jellyfish, some being dangerous species found in Thailand and the Philippines. DAN World encourages any underwater photographers in Asia, especially Thailand, to photograph any jellyfish they see on a dive and send a copy of the photo to us. Please be sure to document as precisely as possible the locations of each photo. Your assistance will enable us to increase our understanding, to better catalogue the potentially dangerous species present in parts of our region and help in establishing appropriate prevention and management strategies.

We have produced a large poster with images of some potentially deadly jellyfish and useful first aid and prevention advice. We have already begun to distribute these in Thailand and plan to make them available elsewhere in the Region.
