Adopt A Dolphin
The Dolphin Discovery Centre’s Adopt a Dolphin Program supports the conservation of dolphins and the broader marine environment.
Bottlenose Dolphins are found in Australian waters and in many oceans worldwide. By adopting one of our Koombana Bay dolphins you are assisting our organisation to monitor and protect these wonderful marine mammals. Your contribution will help us to increase our public education programs, provide safe interaction with humans and support our research and study programs.
Bottlenose Dolphins and all marine mammals globally face increasing pressure from human activities, so despite numbers being abundant, we must remain vigilant. With increased public awareness about dolphins and marine conservation, we have a greater chance of ensuring their sustainability.
By adopting a Koombana Bay Bottlenose Dolphin, not only do you have the satisfaction of knowing you are making a difference, but you will also receive gifts of appreciation according to the level of your contribution.
Choose Your Dolphin
Shanty is the Matriarch of Koombana Bay. We estimate her to be over 40 years of age. Shanty is one of the most regular visitors to our Interaction Zone.
She is one of our very regular beach dolphins, often visiting our Interaction Zone and enthralling our guests. This year Eclipse has become a mum and her calf Leap is the first confirmed 4th generation calf.
Levy was born in 1994. Levy and her calves often visit and enthrall our guests in our Beach Interaction Zone.
Cracker is often seen with the other females from the maternal group, including Shanty, Levy, Key and Flat-top spending quality mum and baby time together within the safety of the shallow waters of Leschenault Estuary.
Calypso is the calf of Shanty and is often very inquisitive with guests on our Swim Tours. Although she is only a very occasional visitor to the Interaction Zone, she comes very close to people and often stays for quite long periods of time, sometimes when older brother Osho is visiting.
Chocolate loves fishing in the shallow waters of the Leschenault Estuary and this has caused a few problems for him as he has become stranded. We have had to rescue him three times and, thankfully he has survived these ordeals,
