Blue Planet II - Turtle

Blue Planet II, Exmouth and Conservation

Blue Planet II with Sir David Attenborough filmed the marine sea life off Shark Bay. The show demonstrated just how naturally beautiful the waters off the Western Australian coast are.

Exmouth is a World Heritage listed area making it one of the world’s most precious hotspots. People come from all over to swim with Humpbacks, Whalesharks, Manta Rays, sharks, turtles and all of our other marine wildlife at our clean Ningaloo Reef.

Keeping our Ocean’s Clean

Every small change we can make to help keep our waters clean will make a difference. Ever wondered where the fish you eat comes from? Ever thought of helping but not sure what you can do?

Here’s a list of small changes that can make big changes…

  • Take your own cup to the coffee shop for takeaway coffee
  • Stop drinking from plastic straws! They are clogging up our oceans
  • Take all of your rubbish like cigarette buts, bottles, bottle top and beer tops home with you
  • Pack your kids lunches into reusable sandwich sized boxes instead of sandwich bags or plastic wrap
  • Choose sustainably caught fish
  • Recycle plastics, cardboard, paper, aluminium cans and glass.
  • Take your own shopping bags to the shops instead of using plastic bags
  • Choose cardboard or paper alternatives instead of plastic where possible, such as cotton buds and straws
  • Do the right thing and pickup any rubbish you find at the beach
  • Someone else trash is often another’s treasure… Sell clothing and goods online or drop off at op shops rather than land fill.
  • Buy bamboo… It’s amazing what Bamboo can be made into from toothbrushes to the softest nappies and it’s eco friendly!

Delightful Dishes and Extensive Drinks

The Social Society Exmouth has a menu that is diverse and unique. Serving dishes such as Housemade Granola with Fruit and Walnut and Bean Burgers.  I had the Turkish Fried Eggs but asked if the eggs could be poached. No problem at all Anne was happy to oblige. What a treat they were poached to perfection and everything else on the plate was scrumptious.  I certainly did not miss the meat it was plentiful and satisfying.  This dish had been recommended by a friend who said it was the first *Vegetarian Meal* she had ever had where she didn’t feel it needed bacon.  She was not wrong it didn’t need bacon or any kind of meat.  I also had a pot of the Rooibos Tea a very generous serve loved it.
