This piece uses recordings captured at Shell Beach in the Shark Bay world heritage area on the central west coast of WA. The beach skirts a shallow bay with a very high salt content, which renders it unliveable for most marine life. Billions of tiny cockles are one of the few species that have adapted to the hypersaline conditions, and the beach is covered with their shells instead of sand. Despite the unique biosystem and beauty of this natural wonder, just a few hundred metres from the tourist area, the beach is bulldozed and the shells sold for industrial and agricultural uses.
