We went to 2 Peoples Bay near Albany.  At the visitor center we learned about 2 animals that were thought to be extinct but found again in the area.  The first is the Noisy Scrub-bird.  It was found again in 1961.  The rediscovery of this bird in the area led to Two Peoples Bay becoming a nature reserve instead of a holiday resort.  The other is Gilbert's Potaroo.  Gilbert's Potaroo is one of the world's most endangered mammals and was thought to be extinct for 120 years until it was found again in 1994.  These two animals are still very rare in the area so we didn't see either while there, but 2 people (Ben and I):), took a nice walk down to what may be the most beautiful beach we've ever been to.  It's called Little Beach.
