Lady Elliot Island

This is a field guide to the wildlife at Lady Elliot Island, located at the southern end of Australia's Great Barrier Reef.

It covers:

* 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 ( 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.

Note that while this app. continues to support capture of your own observations including photos and audio recordings, we strongly encourage you to use iNaturalist for your own records. The strength of the iNaturalist community and the breadth of its observation database are both fantastic. Future versions of this app will store observations captured within the app. on iNaturalist. If you have legacy observations of your own on the Gaia Guide system that you would like to migrate to iNaturalist, please get in contact with us directly.
