How 'Flipper' is helping teach dolphin rescue in Oman

Monthly workshops teaching people how to save stranded dolphins are being run by the government in Oman.

The workshops use real-life scenarios and an inflatable replica called Flipper.

The government has also outlawed the use of certain types of fishing nets to protect dolphins and whales from getting tangled up in them. A total ban on all nets is not currently planned as a large percentage of the population rely on fishing for a living - something which is a global issue.

The BBC Travel Show’s Ade Adepitan finds out more.
