Green turtles, loggerhead turtles and hawksbill turtles, three of the world’s seven species of marine turtles, nest on mainland beaches adjacent to Ningaloo Reef during the summer months between November and April annually.

If you would like to view nesting marine turtles the WA Parks & Wildlife Service strongly recommends that you visit the Jurabi Turtle Centre and encourages you to participate in a guided experience. By participating in guided turtle experiences, you are actively helping to conserve marine turtles and will have a better opportunity to view marine turtles nesting in the natural environment. Information on how to get involved in the Ningaloo Turtle Program is here.
