We had a busy time at the Dolphin Centre during the school holidays. Fortunately we had most of the dolphins visit. Mystique is still missing in action but Patch and Harmony seem to be stepping up to the task with bringing in the odd rubbish item from Snapper Creek.
I am glad to report that we haven’t seen any plastics around, so hopefully the public is taking note of trying to reduce plastic usage or, better still, making sure recycling is done.
Our three-year calf ‘Luna’ seems to be settling into the feeding program and is starting to take an occasional fish from the public. He is a fast learner, so hopefully he will stay in the feeding program.
Sometimes the adult male dolphins will exercise their will and chase out young male dolphins who may be a threat to their authority.
We open at 7am and have viewing of the dolphins until around 7.45am. This gives visitors a chance to hear all about the history and attributes of our Australian Humpback dolphins. Photography is welcomed.
See you there!
