Boullanger Island

Boullanger Island lies off the coast of Western Australia and covers an area of about 35 ha. The nearest settlement is the mainland town of Jurien Bay.

The island is part of the Jurien Bay Marine Park which was declared in August 2003 – the park is located 200 to(-) north of Perth, along the Indian Ocean Drive, and extends south from Green Head to the Southern boundary of Nambung National Park, encompassing many of the islands located in this region. The Park protects an important section of Western Australia's central west coast, including Boullanger, Whitlock and Escape islands.

Both Boullanger Island and Jurien Bay were named on 1 July 1801 by the French expedition led by Captain Nicolas Baudin aboard the Gographe. Boullanger Island honours the cartographer of the expedition, Charles-Pierre Boullanger. Jurien Bay honours Charles Marie Vicomte Jurien (17631836), a French naval administrator.

The island is inhabited by an endemic species of marsupial mouse, Sminthopsis boullangerensis, the Boullanger Island dunnart. It was formerly considered a subspecies of the grey-bellied dunnart (''S. griseoventer''), for which reason it was not assessed by the IUCN in 2008 (although it was classed as critically endangered in the 1996 list). The EPBC Act classifies the Boullanger Island dunnart as vulnerable.

Country - Australia

Flag of Australia
Australia, officially the Commonwealth of Australia, is a sovereign country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania and numerous smaller islands. It is the largest country in Oceania and the world's sixth-largest country by total area. The neighbouring countries are Papua New Guinea, Indonesia and East Timor to the north; the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu to the north-east; and New Zealand to the south-east. The population of million is highly urbanised and heavily concentrated on the eastern seaboard. Australia's capital is Canberra, and its largest city is Sydney. The country's other major metropolitan areas are Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide.

Australia was inhabited by indigenous Australians for about 60,000 years before the first British settlement in the late 18th century. It is documented that Aborigines spoke languages that can be classified into about 250 groups. After the European exploration of the continent by Dutch explorers in 1606, who named it New Holland, Australia's eastern half was claimed by Great Britain in 1770 and initially settled through penal transportation to the colony of New South Wales from 26 January 1788, a date which became Australia's national day. The population grew steadily in subsequent decades, and by the 1850s most of the continent had been explored and an additional five self-governing crown colonies established. On 1 January 1901, the six colonies federated, forming the Commonwealth of Australia. Australia has since maintained a stable liberal democratic political system that functions as a federal parliamentary constitutional monarchy, comprising six states and ten territories.
