Site summary
The ranges next to the town of Wyndham support one of the largest known populations of the endangered Gouldian Finch, breeding in old-growth eucalypt savannas. The IBA also supports populations of the range-restricted Yellow-rumped Mannikin and seven species restricted to the tropical savanna biome.

Sarah Pryke and James Brazill-Boast wrote the nomination. Save the Gouldian Fund has supported various research projects and provided research facilities. The local residents and Shire of Wyndham have also supported research and conservation activities.
