The slideshow ‘tells the story’ of the Ningaloo Coast with a portfolio of photos that illustrate the landscape features of this outstanding place, together with some of the typical marine life, plants and animals. It starts with some aerial views of the Muiron islands in the far north of the site, before showing some of the extensive white sand beaches and turtles hauling up onto the shore to nest. Some of the marine life along the Ningaloo Coast – breaching whales, whale sharks, turtles, corals, fish and a ray concealing itself in a sandy area of the sea floor is shown. The second part of the slideshow illustrates the shoreline features on the mainland, with its extensive sandy beaches at Shark Bay and Coral Bay, and the rocky inlets at Yardie Creek in the Cape Range National Park component of the site. Some of the typical birds and other animals are shown, including osprey, black-footed rock wallaby and turtles mating in the sea and beaches.
