Detailed Information:
The Ningaloo Reef is a 280 km long 'fringing' coral reef skirting the Cape Range peninsular, mid way up the West Australian coastline, 1200km north of Perth. Maud's Landing in the south of Bateman Bay is the site of the proposed Coral Coast Resort.

It is the longest fringing reef and one of the last 'relatively pristine' major coral reef systems in the world. Ningaloo is so unique in its profound biodiversity that it easily qualifies for World Heritage Listing (although this has not yet happened).

The relative health of the area is primarily due to its isolation, but this isolation may be shattered if plans to build a major resort there get the go ahead. There is still time to stop this plan, and create a sanctuary for 'wilderness' that the world can enjoy, appreciate and learn from, forever.
