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.

What are those dolphins up to???
Lots of action has being happening down at the dolphin feed.  Schools of mullet have been swimming through the area, so the dolphins have been having a great time hunting and catching their own food.
Little Phoenix is growing up fast but seems to miss her playmate Zephyr.
Sadly we do not see Zephyr anymore at the feed; although he was spotted a few days ago swimming with Bella south of the resort.
Storm looks like he has been getting himself into a bit of trouble with some of the other older dolphins as he has rake marks and bruises on his body.  He and Silhouette are still as mischievous as ever.
Nari is doing really well, his shark injury scar is very faint now, you can hardly see it.
Echo Rani and Bobo are still "the boys of Moreton Bay" chasing the female dolphins around the bay.  Tink and Tangles are fending off any attention that the male dolphins are giving to them as these two are very popular with the boys.  Still no sign that Tangles is pregnant, we just have to wait and see.
