We can accomplish this by:
Educating visitors of environmental impacts
Educating and promoting “NO TOUCH” protocols
Anchoring in sand only
Using recycled products where possible
Reducing water consumption
Minimizing the use of detergents and cleaning products
Ensuring motors are in good running order
Encouraging an appreciation of environmental conservation
Monitoring the impact of operations
Rotating tour routes to avoid repeated wildlife disturbance
Considering breeding sites and seasons
Avoiding disruption to wildlife movement
Interacting with marine life in a manner that avoids stressing or injuring the animal
Preventing the introduction of parasites and non-indigenous species
Educating snorkelers on minimal wildlife disturbance and environmental impact
Preventing damage to the reef and seabed
Reporting any significant damages or changes appropriately
We must ensure the preservation of the reef and do our best to maintain its natural appearances and biodiversity for future generations.
Coral Bay Indigenous Heritage
The People and their Traditional Country
Bayungu country extends from Point Cloates through to Point Quobba, then stretches east to Manberry Station and north to Winning Pool Station. In 1998 ownership of Cardabia Station was handed back to the Bayungu people. This station is now run as a pastoral property with Bayungu people working as managers. Cardabia has become the main place where people of Bayungu heritage gather. Murlandia, or Maud’s Landing, was one of the main traditional meeting places where people from all neighbouring language groups came together.
"Bayungu" is an Aboriginal language spoken in the north-west of Western Australia. The Bayungu Aboriginal Corporation represents the descendant of the people who occupied the coast regions between Carnarvon and Point Cloates before European occupation. Bayungu country starts at Point Cloates and extends South to Point Quobba and Lake Macleod, East to Manberry, Wandagee, Middalya and Minilya, North to Winning pool Station and West to the coast at Cardabia, Warroora, Gnaraloo and Quobba
The country on which the Bayungu people traditionally lived is located along much of the Ningaloo Marine Park on the Coast of Western Australia. Bayungu country is part of the area where the Pilbara and the Gascoyne regions overlap. Bayungu is the Language of the bayungu people of WA. It is classified by researchers as a Pama-Nyungan Language, belonging to the Ganyara group. Other languages considered to be Ganyara are Binigura, Burduna and Thalanyji; in these languages, the word for man is 'Ganyara"
