Regional Fauna

The following are but a few examples of some of the many wonderful animals to be found in Western Port’s marine, coastal and catchment environments. In each case we have provided the common and scientific names, the source of the photographs and useful links that provide further information on the species.

Over time and with the help of the Community we hope to build the scope and size of this collection and make it a valuable record of the region’s biodiversity.

Most photographs in the collection have been taken within the Western Port region and it is the policy of the WPSP to seek and present photographic records of species observed in the region rather than generic stock.
