The Project Eden area covers most of the PĂ©ron Peninsula, making it the biggest arid zone nature conservation project in Australia. The first phase was to separate the peninsula from the mainland to prevent introduced species entering the area. This was achieved by a two-metre high, three-kilometre long fence at the narrowest point of the peninsula near Shell Beach. Monkey Mia and Shark Bay.
