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.

Dolphins News, 10 December 2009

Prior to the Dolphin Feed last night, a 10 kg Yellow Tail Kingfish swam through the dolphin feed area past Shadow a 15 year old female dolphin who is a very efficient and skilled hunter.  As the fish swam past Shadow, she sprang out from under the jetty and caught it.  Shadow then took the Kingfish to the bottom of the sea floor to break its head off and spent the next 30 mintues tearing large chunks out of the fish and eating it.  Yelllow Tail Kingfish are fast swimming pelagic fish that tend to inhabit areas no further north than Fraser Island.  Good one Shadow!!!
