The Gnaraloo Wilderness Foundation is a not-for-profit charity working to protect the natural environment within and adjacent to the Ningaloo Coast World Heritage Area in Western Australia. Our focus includes native flora and fauna both on land and in the ocean, as well as surface and subsurface species and the conservation of dark skies.
Gnaraloo is situated on the Ningaloo coast in North Western Australia, next to the Ningaloo Coast World Heritage Area and Ningaloo Marine Park. It abuts 60 km of coastline, including southern parts of the Ningaloo Reef and 4 marine sanctuary zones.
The Gnaraloo Wilderness Foundation is dedicated to protect the landscape, associated habitats and all native flora and fauna species at Gnaraloo. Our conservation efforts support the third largest loggerhead turtle population in the world.
Community and schools may share in the research work of the Gnaraloo Wilderness Foundation through field excursions and free presentations. It’s a great chance to talk to field scientists and discover more about marine turtle conservation.
