The Kimberley region of Western Australia is one of the world’s last great wilderness areas and is home to some of the country’s most iconic natural landmarks. The Kimberley’s diverse habitats support a variety of plants and animals, many of which are found nowhere else on Earth.
The natural world of the Kimberley provides an unprecedented view of the Kimberley’s flora, fauna and landscapes, and the conservation efforts underway to preserve them. It also highlights the Kimberley’s ecological importance and explores how various groups – including local Indigenous Australian communities – are working together to protect this pristine landscape.
This stunning 312-page book contains 15 chapters and eight features grouped in five subject areas – land; plants and fungi; animals; sea and coast; and the environment.
These fascinating chapters have been written by eminent scientists and land managers are illustrated by exquisite full-colour photos, maps, graphs and diagrams.
Compiled by Hamish McGlashan, Kevin Coate, Jeffrey Gresham and Roz Hart.
The natural world of the Kimberley is a valuable resource for nature lovers, adventurers and anyone interested in this extraordinary part of Australia.
