Another two rare Irrawaddy dolphins were found dead on Wednesday in the sea off a beach in tambon Mai Rood in Khlong Yai district of Trat, bringing the confirmed death toll of the threatened marine mammals in the eastern province this year to 10. 

The carcasses of the dolphins were spotted separately within half an hour of each other this morning, about two kilometres and four kilometres off the beach, by researchers of Trat Bay Dolphins Conservation Group, who were exploring Irrawaddy dolphins in the area.    

Autopsies revealed the dolphins had been dead for about seven days, said Krittapas Srisangkajorn, president of the Marine Endangered Species Saving Network.
