Abstract:
The Ningaloo Coast tells an extraordinary story of biogeography, climate change, the assembling of continents and the opening of oceans, biological richness and environmental conservation. It is one of the best places to encounter the remarkable whale shark, the world’s largest fish, which aggregates here in higher numbers than have been recorded anywhere else. Its dramatic setting and rich biology reveal a long record of continental change, isolation and evolution. The property has outstanding biological diversity, and plays an internationally significant role in the protection of marine species. All of these features are extremely well preserved—the management of the Ningaloo Coast demonstrates some of the world’s best practice in tropical marine, terrestrial and karst management. The juxtaposition of deep ocean and one of the world’s largest nearshore reefs with an arid and ancient continental shore is at the heart of the property’s geological, biological and aesthetic value.
