Our Dolphin Research Australia School Holiday Marine Education Programs for younger ages are based on learning, experiencing and connecting with dolphins and the marine environment. Through fun integrated activities, children will learn about the lives of dolphins and their plight for survival. Our programs empower both young and old to help to protect dolphins and their environment from the growing number of threats they face.
Our team of professional marine educators and volunteers facilitate each program and guides the participants through fun and informative activities.
During the program, children (and adults alike) learn about the world of dolphins and the oceans through talks, an art and craft session and a beach clean-up (weather permitting & selected programs only). Over the 2hr session, the children learn all sorts of exciting facts as well as how they can help to conserve the home of dolphins and the oceans and actually participate in helping to clean up our beaches.
Our holiday sessions invite the children to connect with the oceans, dolphins and all sea creatures. We will share our knowledge about dolphins and their environment and also find out how much we have in common with them and how we can help conserve them – in a creative and experiential way through dance and movement, guided meditation, and art and craft.

Cancellation more than 48hrs prior to workshop will receive 100% refund.
Cancellation of less than 48hrs prior to the workshop will not be refunded.
There are no refunds after the starting date of the workshop. If the participant fails to join the program or leaves the program at any time, no refunds will be issued.
If the program needs to be cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions or any other reason by the organisation, a full refund will be issued.
*Please note in the unlikely circumstances where the program is cancelled by the organisation if the participant level is below the required number or natural disasters or other external events, you may choose between us applying the amounts paid toward an alternative date or workshop or receiving a full (100%) refund. In the circumstances where there are too few people for the workshop to go ahead, the organisation may request a change of dates or alternatively you will receive a 100% refund.
