Irish Teens Begin 'Blue Zoo' Filming In Australia

#OnTV - Four Irish teenagers are currently having the time of their lives filming a new marine wildlife documentary series in Australia, according to RTÉ's The Entertainment Network.

As previously reported on, Blue Zoo will follow the exploits of the four Irish young people teaming up with four Australian teens to work with rescued dolphins, seals and turtles at a marine wildlife park in Coffs Harbour, New South Wales.

Aurea Kenny, Sophie O'Loughlin-Kennedy, Tallann Maguire and Darragh Joyce will spend the next six weeks with their Aussie counterparts training with and caring for wildlife, and filming for the show - which will be broadcast on RTÉ Two and Australia's ABC3 next year.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open. is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
