Location map of the Two Peoples Bay Nature Reserve

The Two People's Bay Nature Reserve is a small nature reserve on the south west coast of Western Australia. It is where Gilbert's Potoroo, one of the world's rarest mammals can be found. A bird species thought to have been extinct was also rediscovered at Two Peoples Bay. The area was made a reserve in 1967.[1]

It is 35 km (22 mi) east of the city of Albany, Western Australia.[2]

In 1962, the noisy scrubbird was rediscovered here.[3] In 1994, Gilbert's Potoroo was found here too.[4] It hadn't been seen for more than 120 years.
