Fund Clean-Up projects and research projects in Shark Bay WA

Donation protected
We are Shark Bay Eco Tours and Ocean Park Aquarium. We started in the early 2000s as a pink snapper breeding station to aid with the population recovery of pink snapper. Over the years we moved our sight to education, and aim to education everyone that visits us in Shark Bay about the history and wildlife of our world heritage area. On top of our usually operating we have our hand in several research projects. We are helping research the population of critically endangered white spotted wedge fish and leopard sharks in the region of Shark Bay. As well as ID our year round manta ray population. We've also taken part in tiger shark research, where a satellite tracking tag and camera. We tracked our shark called 'Buff' for 9 months as he travelled around Shark Bay.

The money donated will be used to fund projects like this. But also Shark Bay is home to mainland Australia's most westerly point, Steep Point. This is an extremely popular fishing spot and there is a massive amount of discarded fishing equipment below the cliffs. In our last clean up dive we covered less than 5% of the area and pulled out over 100kg of waste. Steep Point being a 90 boat journey out takes a fair amount of fuel to reach, your donations will help cover our fuel cost to get our volunteers out there.
