Supporting Wildlife Research

Fremantle Ports has supported research into dolphins, Little Penguins and Fairy Terns for a number of years.

Bottlenose dolphins use Fremantle Inner Harbour daily for foraging and upstream access. Support is also provided for research into the resilience of Little Penguins near the Perth metropolitan area (Penguin and Garden islands). Our breeding sanctuary for Fairy Terns within the port precinct at Rous Head is making a strong contribution to the conservation of these vulnerable little birds.
