Like any ecosystem, the tropical seashores include a distinct range of specific plants and animals. However, because of the wide distribution ability of marine, intertidal and island organisms, many of these same seashore flora and fauna species are found around a huge part of the planet.
In the north east of Australia is the muddy but birdy Cairns esplanade. The east coast of Queensland is of course dominated by the Great barrier Reef and includes Lizard Island, and Michaelmas Cay. On the north west coast of Australia is Broome, and the Lacepede Islands. and there are birds breeding on the islands of Ashmore Reef.
North of Australia is Indonesia, with explosive Krakatoa. More remote are the tropical Pacific islands. The Cook Islands include the stunning Aitutaki Atoll. North into the Micronesian islands is Palau. Out in the very remote eastern Pacific are the Pitcairn Islands.
