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.

The bay welcomes a new dolphin family member

Tangalooma welcomes a new member to their dolphin family.

Tangalooma is proud to announce the arrival of their newest member to the dolphin family. One of the resident dolphins, Tinkerbell has given birth to a new calf. The new beauty is only a couple of weeks old, and around 80cm long. This is the 22 year olds fourth calf.

When dolphins give birth to a calf, they are very protective. Often lingering out the back of Tangalooma’s dolphin feeding sessions, mothers tend to steer their newborn calves away from not only humans, but other dolphins. Yet, lucky for Tangalooma’s guests, Tinkerbell has shown great trust and confidence in bringing her new calf into the dolphin feeding sessions.

The new calf is yet to be named. Tangalooma will be hosting a ‘baby naming competition’ on facebook to not only celebrate the dolphin’s arrival to Tangalooma, but to find a name for their little treasure. The winner of the competition will embark on a VIP Tangalooma experience for four, with 5 runners up enjoying one of the amazing whale watch cruises and one lucky voter enjoying a weekend away at Tangalooma.

There is no better time to come and visit Tangalooma Island Resort, situated on Moreton Island, only 75 minutes from Brisbane. So jump on one of the ferry’s and come and visit the gorgeous baby dolphin calf.

While you are over there, don’t miss out on the array of tours and activities available at Tangalooma. Whether you are an island explorer, nature lover or adrenaline junkie, Tangalooma has something to suit you. With over 80 tours and activities available, the hardest decision you will make is which one to try first.

So get over to Tangalooma Island Resort and say hello to their new little member.
