As well as major sea lion and seabird breeding areas, Jurien Marine Park contains biological communities, populated with a mix of temperate and tropical plants and animals, courtesy of the Leeuwin Current. Jurien's offshore areas are like a temperate version of Ningaloo Reef. Numerous colourful corals grow in the area (although they don't form reefs) and the extensive limestone reefs that contain breathtaking grottos and overhangs are a diver's delight. These are covered with colourful sponges and sea squirts and surrounded by a diverse variety of fish and other marine life, such as western rock lobsters. Extensive seagrass meadows provide shelter and nursery habitat for these and many other species.
