    Children of New Quay Mural

    Help us to grow our Children of New Quay mural. This artwork has a permanent home in our Dolphin Hub – but it’s not finished yet! The collage symbolises the ocean, with interweaving themes of plastic pollution and it’s impacts on a once healthy ecosystem. We welcome in families to craft artwork from recycled waste. You can even spot cetaceans right out the window as you craft – the Dolphin Hub overlooks the Bay.

    You can also “rescue the dolphin” where we re-enact a cetacean stranding. This exciting activities educates the public on what to do if they find a real life dolphin or whale beached. All the family can get involved in following proper protocol!
