To help protect our coastal flora, fauna & marine life through education, research and conservation by direct donations to select marine and coastal conservation organisations.
Growing up and living on the Ningaloo Reef this area holds a special place in our family's hearts, just as it did for the Australian Aboriginal Yamatji peoples of the Baiyungu and Yinigudura clans who inhabited the area for over 30,000 years and who named the area Ningaloo meaning high land close to or jutting from 'Deepwater'.
We want to help continue the work of the original custodians of the Coastal lands and Ningaloo Reef to preserve what we all love so much for future generations to experience.
So, with that in mind we have started the Ningaloo Defenders, with your help and online purchases 10% of sales will be directly donated so that we can forward those funds to these groups and help protect and preserve our coastline and vulnerable / endangered species, your helping to do this every time you purchase our new Repreve - Sustainable Swimwear and other selected Ningaloo Defenders eco products like the Whale Shark Mermaids Calendar and the Ningaloo Defenders Mugs, Stickers, Tote Bags and Trucker Hats

Project O.R.C.A (Orca Research and Conservation Australia) is being undertaken by Centre for Marine Science and Technology (CMST) at Curtin University, Perth, Australia. This project adopts a multidisciplinary approach to investigate the distribution, abundance, bioacoustics and population dynamics of killer whales in Australian waters. Results from this study will provide pertinent data to address the population status of this species and deliver key scientific information for assisting management of Australian killer whales.
