Mystique with a large barnacled rock on his rostrum – ask our volunteers to show you more photos at the centre.

I guess everyone knows now that Ella is a regular visitor and brings her offspring, Squirt, in to show off. It has been great for locals and visitors to see two, three or four dolphins in the cove at any one time.
Now that the bumper summer holiday period is over we revert back to some normality. The Europeans were enthralled with our bird life, especially the small aqua-eyed black cormorants that sometimes pester us at the Dolphin Centre.
Please stay out of the water should you see the dolphins in close or hanging around the boat ramp. They are a protected and endangered species so be mindful of the regulations about illegal feeding or touching the dolphins.
Mystique and Patch have been at it again: collecting bottles, rocks and pieces of timber from the bottom of Snapper Creek. They present them to the volunteers after swimming around showing off their prizes. The dolphins are doing their bit to clean up the bay so make sure you do not add to the problem.
