This IBA regularly supports the critically endangered Orange-bellied Parrot on migration. It also provides non-breeding habitat for the endangered Swift Parrot; supports significant numbers of the vulnerable Fairy Tern, the near threatened Hooded Plover and the congregatory Cape Barren Goose and Pied Oystercatcher; and supports populations of ten restricted-range (endemic) and two biome-restricted species.
