50 Years of Rehabilitation

Since we launched on Boxing Day in 1970, we’ve always focussed on marine animal rehabilitation. We’re passionate about marine life, and with the growing rate of ocean plastics and pollution, unfortunately, more and more marine animals are brought to us for our help. 

This passion inspired our team to set up our charity Dolphin Marine Rescue Animal Rehab Trust (DMRART) which is developing plans to build a specialised marine and native wildlife triage hospital in Coffs Harbour.

From fishing hooks stuck in throats, fishing wire in bellies, and injuries caused by human interaction such as boats, our marine animal care team has worked tirelessly to rehabilitate and release hundreds of animals including dolphins, seals, turtles, and seabirds. Our rehabilitation efforts at Dolphin Marine Conservation Park truly give these animals a second chance at life.

Proud Accreditations & Partnerships

All animal rehabilitation services at Dolphin Marine Conservation Park are funded by our park with no external financial support.

Dolphin Marine Conservation Park is the only facility in NSW licensed by NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service to rescue and rehabilitate dolphins on site. We are also one of only two facilities in NSW licensed to rescue and rehabilitate Australian sea lions and seals on site.

We work with WIRES and ORRCA Inc. to assist in marine animal emergencies.
