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 Home Tinkerbell!!!

Last night Tinkerbell returned to Tangalooma after being absent since the January Queensland flood disaster.  It was a very exciting and emotional return for Tinkerbell as we had not seen her in such a long time and naturally we had concern for her safety and well being.

Tink entered the feed area at 6.05pm from the north west and she didn't have any apparent marks or injuries and seemed to be in good health.  When Tinkerbell did enter the feed area, she swam straight over to her first born calf,Tangles.

SadlyTinkerbell's two and a half year old calf Phoenix was not with her.  We are hoping that she may be with the juveniles and will hopefully come in with them over the next few weeks.

We are extremely happy to see Tinkerbell and are hopeful in looking forward to seeing the other dolphins return over the next few weeks or months.
