Adopt a Dolphin

How can you help protect the dolphins of Koombana Bay?

Why not adopt one of your own? You’ll be helping the Dolphin Discovery Centre to continue their important research, conservation and education programs and you’ll receive a kit of information about the centre and your dolphin.

By adopting a dolphin you will be helping the Dolphin Discovery Centre to:

  • Educate the public about dolphins and the environment in which they live
  • Increase awareness of the need to protect dolphins and all other marine mammals
  • Observe and study the dolphins to better understand their complex lives and monitor the impact of humans on the dolphins and the Bay
  • Provide opportunities for people to interact with wild dolphins in a supervised setting where no harm will come to the dolphins
  • Assist the Department of Conservation and Land Management in the rescue and rehabilitation of stranded or injured dolphins and other marine life
A crowd pleaser…
A matriarch and gentle soul…
The Adoption Package starts at $50.00 AUD per year for an individual…
