VIDEO: Surprise package arrives at Tangalooma

May 31, 2012 No Comments by

One of Tangalooma’s favourite mums, dolphin Tinkerbell, arrived at shore on Friday night with a brand new calf in tow. The calf is number four for the 22-year-old Tinkerbell, and is a younger sibling for the very popular teenagers Tangles and Storm and the juvenile Phoenix. It will be some time before dolphin carers at Tangalooma can determine the sex and at least 12 months before the new calf joins the feeding program on Moreton Island.

Check out the video of its first visit to Tangalooma. Pretty damn cute!

Kim Noble is a newbie to Queensland and it shows - she had no idea who Darryn Lockyer was, thought Streets Beach was in the USA and still tries to drive down the pedestrian only bridges in Brisbane. Her time as a publicist at Tourism Queensland has been a lesson in all things Queensland and she has fallen head over heels for this amazing state (except during State of Origin). She's a massive foodie and spends most of the day working out what (or where) for dinner, would swap the snow for the beach any day, has been 'learning to surf' for around 8 years now, and has a 'meh' attitude to chocolate. Seriously.
