The Australian and Queensland governments are committed to protecting the Great Barrier Reef—and this is your chance to have a say on its management.

The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority and Queensland Government are undertaking a comprehensive strategic assessment of the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area and adjacent coastal zone.

The draft strategic assessment and program reports are now available for public comment.

The draft reports look at the Reef’s values and how these values are being protected now and into the future, while enabling the sustainable development of the coastal zone.

Consultation closes on Friday 31 January 2014.

The comprehensive strategic assessment has been developed in accordance with the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999.
