Rehabilitation

Rehabilitation is extremely important to the team at Dolphin Marine Magic. 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 Magic has always been about assisting with the rehabilitation and release of sick and injured marine life. Dolphin Marine Magic is the only facility in NSW licenced by the NSW National Parks 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 Magic currently works the NSW National Parks 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 Magic are provided at Dolphin Marine Magic'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 Magic has set up a charity called CHART which is developing plans to build a specialsed 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 mum and I just spend the whole weekend at Pet Porpoise Pool, we travel from Tweed to Coffs just to see Buck and Zip, we love them and can't get enough. Already driven down 3 times this year, and every time it's amazing. And we loved seeing all 5 dolphins in the pool, Bella's a sneaky little thing! We got drenched by her plenty of times hahaha. Great to hear you enjoyed yourselves - Paige S..
