Australia - March 31st, 2011

The Shark Bay World Heritage area is a series of gulfs, inlets, islands and bays and is split in two by the Peron Peninsula on Australias Coral Coast. The greenish color of the waters on either side of the peninsula is due to a mixture of sediments and algae.

Shark Bay World Heritage Area includes the nature reserves of Dirk Hartog, Bernier and Dorre islands and protects a 55% marine and 45% land environment.
