The Gnaraloo Wilderness Foundation’s mission is to ensure the wildlife and its habitat are protected for future generations.

The Gnaraloo Wilderness Area is home to a diverse and natural ecosystem. Providing habitat for numerous animals and plant life, some of which are endemic and facing the threat of extinction.

Much of Gnaraloo’s biodiversity is still to be discovered. So far 630 different plants, 30 mammal, 84 reptile, five amphibian and around 200 bird species have been recorded in the Carnarvon bioregion. This is supported by a range of available habitats, from mangrove, marine, sandy plains and rocky ranges.

Animals like the Gnaraloo Mulch Slider are only known to occur in a small area from the Gnaraloo Homestead area to Cape Cuvier with only 7 known sightings.
