More than 120 bird species, many of conservation significance, find safe refuge and nesting sites within the park. The hooded plover, a threatened species in South Australia, nests on beaches throughout the park. Rare white-bellied sea eagles and osprey breed all along the coast, they are regularly spotted hunting in the park. When bird watching, carry binoculars and a field guide to help with bird identification. Wear clothes that blend in with the surrounds and be quiet, particularly if birds are nesting. Do not approach or interfere with nests – this can cause birds to abandon them.
Cast your eye downwards and look between the cracks and crevices to find the lesser seen skinks, geckos, snakes, bush rats, spiders and scorpions that live within the park.
Oysters live on rocky limestone, cockle worms burry themselves in the sand and invertebrates such as crabs and shellfish live amongst samphire plants.
