Our Environmental Commitment and Journey So Far
Tangalooma Island Resort aims to be an industry leader in eco-tourism experiences. We are members of EarthCheck, a global eco accreditation program that assists corporations like us to lift their game when it comes to protecting the environment, through exemplary business policy and practices. We are changing the way we do things to preserve the unique and highly valued national and marine parks that surround our resort. We make major contributions to our local environment through:
Tangalooma Marine Education and Conservation Centre
A passionate and dedicated team of Eco Rangers provides 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 the surrounding eco systems. Through education, attitudes can change. People become aware of their environments and are motivated to make a difference.
The Marine Education and Conservation Centre (TMECC) is positioned in the centre of two protected environments Moreton Bay Marine Park and Moreton Island National Park, with endangered animals in both areas. Dolphins, dugongs, whales, turtles, rays, marine birds, protected native species and many other species are the focus of interpretative talks and presentations hosted by the centre.
Tangalooma EcoMarines Foundation (TEM) is a not for profit education and conservation program that assists and sponsors community engagement and action to protect the marine life of Moreton Bay. Tangalooma EcoMarines is a free membership based partnership among mutual interested schools, organisations and community groups who believe they have a strong role to play in helping to manage the impacts of everyday mainland activities on local catchments and river systems that feed into Moreton Bay.
Tangalooma EcoMarines is Brisbane’s most innovative and effective education and conservation movement to save the marine life of Moreton Bay and takes local action to clean up the waterways of Brisbane and to protect and preserve marine life through a wide range of activities.
As a registered charity, the Foundation works with schools and sporting clubs, the business sector and community organisations to improve the water quality of waterways throughout south east Queensland.
We fight pollution on every front from litter and stormwater run-off to sedimentation from land clearing and erosion.

Change on the scale that we are making, takes time. We have been on the journey for many years, improving what we do as we learn and adapt to new ideas and technologies. We proudly describe and promote our commitment throughout the resort through our Environmental Policy Statement. We look forward to sharing more of our environmental initiatives with you as we progress.
