Feeding 'will continue'

ACTING Environment Minister Rachel Nolan says public dolphin feeding will continue at Tin Can Bay, contrary to a Gympie Times report.

Describing dolphin feeding as "a unique tourism experience enjoyed by thousands every year", she said: "We want to see this continue - there are no plans to ban public dolphin feeding.

"When consultation on the review was first landed two years ago the then-minister Kate Jones made it very clear that the review would not result in dolphin feeding being banned. That commitment still stands.

"While interactions with wild dolphins are raised as a discussion topic... review documentation explicitly states that commercial dolphin feeding will continue.

"All options have been outlined. This does not mean that DERM is advocating for one option over the other."
