This is a field guide to the wildlife at Lady Elliot Island, located at the southern end of Australia's Great Barrier Reef.
* The incredibly varied bird life * Sharks, rays, fish, turtles, dolphins and whales * The corals, shellfish, nudibranchs and other invertebrates
Images, colour and searchable location data are provided for over 700 fish species as well many marine invertebrates. Similar coverage is available for birds and terrestrial plant file. A growing number of species also include size data.
Descriptions include thousands of images, distribution maps information on distinguishing features, behaviour and habitat preferences, and links to further information.
The data has been extracted from the Gaia Guide (http://www.gaiaguide.info/) and is based upon information about islands in the area from the Atlas of Living Australia and from staff at the Lady Elliot Island Resort.
The app provides powerful search systems to rapidly identify species based upon their type, their name, their location and their colour. Data on size/wingspan remains too incomplete to reliably be used for searching.
If you find something new, consider uploading a photo with a record via the app. Often enough, the species can be later identified by experts and added to the field guide, with attribution of course.
