The Gnaraloo Wilderness Foundation is a not-for-profit charity that stands for the natural environment at Gnaraloo, within and adjacent to the Ningaloo Coast World Heritage Area in Western Australia. Our focus includes native flora and fauna, on land and in the ocean, and the conservation of dark skies.

This year, we tagged Gnargoo and Baiyungu, two endangered female loggerhead turtles who’ve returned to nest at the Gnaraloo Bay Rookery. They’ve now set off to their foraging grounds and you can be the first to know where they go!
Gnaraloo is adjacent to the Ningaloo Coast World Heritage Area and Ningaloo Marine Park in North Western Australia. It abuts 65 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.
Keep Gnaraloo Wild
We deeply believe that Gnaraloo should stay as it is, wild and undeveloped, to protect its biodiversity and wilderness experience.
Together, we can make a difference. Find out ways you can help Keep Gnaraloo Wild and conserve endangered sea turtles for future generations.
Our rigorously researched documents reflect important baseline data on the sea turtles of Gnaraloo and their critical coastal nesting habitat.
