Minimize Kimberley Coast, Australia

GeoEye-1 captured this vivid image of Kimberley Coast off the western coast of Australia on 2 April 2014.

Kimberley Coast features nearly 13,000km of nearly untouched coastline. The region can boast 2,633 islands and an extensive reef system.

The area contains many reefs, mangroves and an abundance of varied wildlife. It has Western Australia's greatest diversity of corals, the world's largest population of humpback whales and is an important area for breeding seabirds.

Due to its relative remoteness, the region remains free of destructive human activity. Accessible for the most part only by sea, the coast is listed as among the least impacted marine environments in the world.
