Western Australia’s marine environment offers unique habitats with diverse marine life, resources and social values.
Beneath Busselton Jetty is a wondrous place, showcasing the biodiversity of WA’s temperate marine ecosystems and unique marine life that live here. Influenced by the warm Leeuwin Current, life in the waters of Geographe Bay is a curious mix of sub tropical and temperate marine ecosystems.
The Busselton Jetty Environment Foundation ensures BJ Inc.’s commitment to be recognised as leaders of marine conservation in a world class environment. We want to ensure the protection and conservation of both our land and marine based environments, for now and into the future.
