Cape York Peninsula

Cape York Peninsula is one of the last great wild places on Earth. Like the Congo, the Serengeti and the Amazon, it deserves the highest protection possible. It is an extraordinary environment with seamless transitions between mangroves, tropical rainforests, savannahs, wetlands - and bountiful coasts and seas. Bounded by the Great Barrier Reef and the Wet Tropics World Heritage areas to the east and the Gulf of Carpentaria in the west. It is half the size of Britain or the size of Pennsylvania.
