Box jelly fish awareness presentations for Koh Samui hotel staff January 2016


After the to fatal box jelly fish incidents on Koh Phangan and on Koh Samui last year, there were a lot of activities going on behind the scene and this resulted also in recent Box jelly fish awareness presentations for Koh Samui hotel staff January 2016 at Rocky's Boutique Resort near Lamai.

Dr Lakkana, on eof the Thai box jelly fish experts, was invited by the THA (Thai Hotel Association), Samui chapter to talk in front of the local Koh Samui hotel managers and to conduct presentations for hotel staff on subsequent days. Unfortunately a day before her arrival, Dr Lakkana's mother had an accident and required surgery and she was at the intensive care unit in Chiang Mai

Dr Lakkana had to cancel her trip down here to Koh Samui and the presentation for the THA members, Samui chapter, has currently been postponed to March.
The presentations for hotel staff went ahead however and Dr Nisa of the Government hospital in Nathon and Khun Jim, owner of the Lamai Wanta hotel in Lamai, took over Box jelly fish awareness presentations for Koh Samui hotel staff January 2016.

The turn out was amazing, 39 hotels with 65 staff attended (including staff from the Anantara Rasanda on Kph Phangan), which made for a very busy conference room at Rocky's Boutique Resort during the Box jelly fish awareness presentations for Koh Samui hotel staff January 2016.

CPR training 

The presentation went over very well and there was some good feedback from the attending hotel staff. The Box jelly fish awareness presentations for Koh Samui hotel staff January 2016 ended with all attendees practicing CPR, one of the main tasks that may be required when dealing with a box jelly fish injury.

The Box jelly fish awareness presentations for Koh Samui hotel staff January 2016 show that people on Koh Samui do care about box jellyfish awareness and keep working to move things ahead and raise awareness and prevention around Koh Samui.

Check also these pages out by DAN (Divers Alert Network) with updated statistics.

There is more to follow, through the THA chapter Samui, and by myself. I have a presentation scheduled for hotel staff on Koh Matsum.

We will keep working to keep raising awareness and prevention. Please help us and join whenever feasible and spread the word! Thanks!
