Australia has the world’s largest area of coral reefs and the third largest area of mangroves. Our marine environment supports a variety of creatures such as dugongs, dolphins, seals, whales, and thousands of different fish and shellfish species. Thirty of the world’s 50 species of sea snakes are found in Australia.
