Rehabilitation

Rehabilitation is extremely important to the team at Dolphin Marine Conservation Park. Over the years we have successfully rehabilitated and released hundreds of animals, including dolphins, seals, turtles and sea birds, back out into the wild for a second chance at life. The photos above are of a rescued pelican that was found with a fishing hook stuck in its throat, with the pelican eventually released. we were pleased the ending of the story was a happy one.

Since it's inception, Dolphin Marine Conservation Park has always been about assisting with the rehabilitation and release of sick and injured marine life. Dolphin Marine Conservation Park is the only facility in NSW licenced by the NSW Nationals and Wildlife Service to rescue and rehabilitate whales and dolphins onsite as well as being one of two facilities licenced to rescue and rehabilitate seals in NSW.

Dolphin Marine Conservation Park currently works the NSW Nationals and Wildlife Services and animal rescue groups such as WIRES and ORRCA Inc. to assist in all marine animal emergencies including caring for sick or injured marine turtles, rescuing injured sea birds or rehabilitating and releasing stranded cetaceans (whales and dolphins) and pinnipeds (seal).

 

In the last several years DMM has attended a number of marine mammal rescues including both whales and dugongs and has successful rehabilitated or released hundreds of animals including dolphins, seals and marine turtles.

 

All the animal rehabilitation services performed by Dolphin Marine Conservation Park are provided at Dolphin Marine Conservation Park's own cost with no external financial support.

To provide greater assistance to these injured marine animals and to expand our rescue and treatment services to native animals, Dolphin Marine Conservation Park has set up a charity called Dolphin Marine Rescue Animal Rehab Trust (DMRART) which is developing plans to build a specialised marine and native wildlife triage hospital in the near future.

This was my last visit to The pet Porpoise pool 35 years ago I was 7. we used to go every year when I was little and my grandmother getting kissed by a seal was the highlight of the day. I loved feeding the fairy penguins and my dream is to one day swim with the dolphins. I would love to win passes to marine magic to experience it again with my family. What great memories Katherine, we hope to w..

My 3 kids, my mum and I had the pleasure of swimming with Zippy today, the experience was truly amazing. Seeing and touching a real dolphin was a dream come true. When I booked the experience I expected a long safety talk followed by a quick photo in the pool. What occured was the complete opposite. We played in the water with Zippy, each got to hug him individually. Thank you Jessi..
