Tangalooma Marine Education & Conservation Centre

Eco Certified Ecotourism

Surrounded by 98% national park and built on the picturesque shores of Moreton Island, the Tangalooma Marine Education and Conservation Centre provides an up-close and personal look into the wonderful world of Moreton Bay. A passionate and dedicated team of Eco Rangers provide a wide range of Eco Walks, Tours and Presentations for all ages and backgrounds. These tours are designed to interactively educate people about conservation and their surrounding eco systems. Through education, attitudes can be changed and people can become aware of their environments so they can start making a difference. 

The Marine Education and Conservation Centre (TMECC) is unique from any other facility as the environment is right on the doorstep, with endangered animals frequently passing the shores. Dolphins, Dugongs, Whales, Turtles, Rays, Marine Birds and so much more can be seen daily with interpretative taks provided by the TMECC Eco Rangers. 

TMECC aims to educate young children with an established program called Eco Marines. Eco Marines is a non-for-profit environmental program that assists and sponsors community engagement in advocacy and action to protect domestic and international waterways, rivers, oceans and wildlife.

Dolphin News, 19 November 2009

In late October, Tangles had been absent from the Dolphin Feed for several nights running.  We were not too worried about this as Tangles is a wild dolphin.  Tangles turned 9 years of age in September of this year and has reached sexual maturity, so it's possible she was being herded by the other male dolphins in Moreton Bay to breed.  This is all part of dolphins societies, so there is a chance that Tangles may be pregnant, we'll just have to wait and see.  In Moreton Bay, dolphins can become pregnant when they turn 9 years old, the gestation period is 12 months, therefore they will give birth to their first born calf when they are approximately 10 years olds.
