How picturesque is Port Gregory? Located near the mouth of the Hutt River on Western Australia’s Coral Coast, Port Gregory is home of the Pink Lake called Hutt Lagoon. The colour is created by the presence of a carotenoid-producing algae called Dunaliella salina.

Don’t be fooled by the cuteness of these tiny marsupials of mousey appearance. Although they only grow to an average size of 6 – 7cm, the Fat-tailed Dunnart is actually a carnivorous marsupial from the same family as the Tasmanian Devil!

Watch this video to see what a difference our shellfish reef restoration project is making. After only 4 months, we're seeing baby blue mussels and native flat oysters growing. We can't wait to see what other marine wildlife will be creating a home here in future.

This interesting looking bird is a Masked Plover or Masked Lapwing. Indigenous people used to say these birds carry yellow spears. These "spears" are used when diving at potential predators or intruders during the breeding season. While these attacks are quite unnerving, the birds seldom actually strike their 'victims'.

This Soft Spiny-tailed Gecko is a slow moving ‘branch mimic’ that spends nearly all its time in shrubs, only moving to the ground to forage or lay eggs. If agitated or threatened it secretes a dark noxious liquid from the tail. This substance is sticky and has a strong unpleasant odour so watch out!
