Explore A Wild Western Australia

What better way to #Connect2Earth than to explore Australia’s wild and stunning west coast?


Western Australia is wildly beautiful with its vast red Earth, stunning landscapes and incredible wildlife.


It’s home to some of the world’s most unique natural treasures, including the pristine Ningaloo Reef. This precious reef is known for its turquoise waters and is a haven for a diverse range of vibrant marine wildlife, including gentle whale sharks.

This Earth Hour, we’re giving you and a friend the chance to experience the ultimate overland trip of a lifetime, in partnership with Intrepid Travel. Explore the wonders of Australia’s west coast and connect to its breathtaking nature.

WWF-Australia’s Work in Broome and the Kimberley

 

 

Northern and Western Australia, including the Kimberley, has been recognised as one of the world’s last relatively undamaged coastal areas. A global treasure akin to the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef and Ningaloo Marine Park, the Kimberley features similar internationally significant ecological, scientific and cultural values.


Our Kimberley threatened species program covers 10 species across 14 Indigenous ranger groups, as well as a marine program that aims to increase the coastal area protected under joint management.


We’re currently working with Indigenous rangers to safeguard the Kimberley rock-wallaby, bilby and Gouldian finch, and these strategic, scientifically-based collaborations are delivering solid conservation results. Over the past decade, we’ve helped to significantly expand protection for marine and terrestrial ecosystems, and we’ll continue to advocate for more Indigenous Protected Areas on land and sea.
