The Shark Bay area supports habitats for 240 bird species (about 35% of Australia’s total bird species), 820 species of plants, and many reptiles and mammals. Exactly which species occur on Hamelin will be revealed after detailed fauna surveys. With the removal of stock and feral predator control habitat quality will improve and we anticipate many species currently absent from the property may reclaim their former range.
