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.

Welcome back boys!
Well it was exciting to see all of the regular dolphins turn up to the feed last night as it has been a while since the mature males have all been in together. The dolphins that  visit Tangalooma are wild dolphins, and they are free to make a choice on whether they want to come in or not.  So over the last few weeks, the male dolphins may have been out chasing the female dolphins around the bay and hunting and catching their own fish in other areas of the bay.
Unfortunately we have not seen Zephyr in the feed area over the last week, although he was spotted out in the Bay with Bella and another pod of dolphins three days ago.  Whether Zephyr  becomes part of the group that visits Tangalooma is hard to say at the moment, but it is great to know that he has other dolphins outside of his family group tht are looking after him..
