ACRS science-based policy plan for Australia’s coral reefs
Positive, practical changes to current reef policies could help reverse the decline in the health of Australia’s coral reefs and increase the viability of all the industries associated with reefs.
Here, we highlight ways to build resilience in Australia’s coral reefs to protect from harmful human impacts. We focus on:
- Climate Change,
- Port development,
- Water quality.
- Crown-of Thorns,
- Marine debris pollution,
- Compliance & Management,
- Beach erosion,
- Anthropogenic noise
