Our Ecopark acts as a living window which looks out into a sheltered  valley of 45 acres (19ha) within Western Australia's Southern Forests. Our Ecopark is an enclave of the Valley of the Giants Forest of ancient Karri and Tingle trees (Eucalyptus spp.). We are dedicated to wildlife information and conservation. We are not surrounded by wildlife impacting  sheep, cattle, farm dogs and farm machinery. Our valley nestles in forested hills of the coastal hinterland and adjoins the northern side of Highway one (Western Australia's South Coast Highway) at the highway's north-western intersection with Boxhall Road (Shown on Google maps as Outer Break Road). These hills are protected from the weather patterns of the nearby Southern Ocean. These hills are separated from coastal dunes to the south by a two kilometre wide corridor of flood prone plain which supports farmland lying immediately south of Highway one. Our Ecopark is 5km directly north of the spectacular Conspicuous surfing beach which is well used by experienced surfers. The lookout at the beach offers reliable views of whales during winter; and occasionally offers views of the Southern Lights  during periods of solar activity (Aurora Australis; see our Photo Album). Our Ecopark is central to nearby towns, attractions, beaches, rivers and inlets.
It is 110km west to Pemberton 6260, 13km west to Walpole 6398, 55km east to Denmark 6333 and 110km east to Albany 6330.
We are 6km from the Valley of the Giants Tree Top Walk through the canopy of the Giants Forest either, via the Highway to the  Valley of the Giants Road 1km to our east or, via the Bibbulmun Walking Track 2km from our Ecopark. This Track extends from Perth to Albany, a distance of approximately 960km.
The  beaches are Rest Point (16km) on Walpole Inlet, Coalmine (10km) on Nornalup Inlet, Bellanger/the Blue Holes (6km), Conspicuous (11km), Peaceful Bay (15km) and Parry's (30km).
The rivers are Shannon (60km), Walpole (15km), Frankland (3km) (NOT Franklin), Bow (13km), Kent (20km) and Denmark (55km).
The inlets are Broke (60km), Walpole (15km), Nornalup (13km), Irwin (13km) and Wilson (35km). These maritime and estuarine features share the Southern Ocean with the Antarctic Continent approximately 5000km to the south. The Southern Ocean adjoins the Indian Ocean which stretches along the relatively long Western Australian coastline, to Cape Londonderry (Latitude South 13
44' & Longitude East 12656' ) in the Timor Sea.

The Timor Sea and the Southern and Indian Oceans provide winter habitat for whales seeking refuge from the harsh Antarctic winters. During the summer months, these whales return to their ancestral Antarctic feeding habitat where  modern technologies are being used to atrociously hunt these intelligent, air-breathing mammals beyond the brink of extinction. Hunting and killing of whales in the Antarctic and Southern Ocean and politico-economic rape of the Australian coastal environment is compromising the future of humanity, biological diversity, whale conservation and the sustainability of all marine oriented commerce. Let's ensure that we never suffer marine pollution catastrophes that are occurring elsewhere. Whale-watching depends upon whales being un-afraid of people in boats. In stark contrast, whale-hunting causes whales to be afraid of people in boats. Thus, whaling in all oceans of the planet should cease in order that whales will survive and will continue to be enjoyed by future generations of humanity.

Along Western Australia's coastline, water levels are noticeably rising due to global warming caused by Green House Gas Emissions which in turn are being generated by expanding global economies. These are extinguishing human, animal and vegetation life of our planet ( Issue 12 Dec 2006/Jan 2007;  pp48-59).This is causing horrors and tragedies to all human and other life of our planet. These disasters are worsening as human populations continue to expand.

The scheme to trade or tax Green House Gas Emissions within Australia will represent a step in salvaging a future for our children. Such a  topic should never be used as a political toy in any nation. Although, Australia's international contribution to gaseous emissions is relatively trivial in global terms, Australia's reputation for innovation and example is being magnified on the World stage by the adoption of a national scheme. In turn this is establishing a green economy based on the two infrastructures of re-newable energy generation and on the National Broadband Network now being installed by the Australian Government. Additionally, the NBN is a cost-effective National asset. These two infrastructures are generating ecologically sustainable socio-economic benefits that are an investment in our children's future. Social benefits especially to country people are relatively cheap, digital TV and internet services.

The accelerating extermination of all life on our planet  represents generally ignored humanitarian crises. These are being caused by un-precedented numbers of people that have never yet before been in occupation of our planet. This latter fact is not being addressed by climate-change sceptics. Thus global warming together with over-population and over-exploitation of the planet's finite resources are moral issues that demand multi-lateral resolution by all of humanity collectively with its leaders in commerce, science, politics, religions and cultures. All have the abilities to reverse over-population of the planet. This can be achieved in agreement with the holy writings of antiquity.
