PreviewThis dataset shows the location and size of the 9 islands, cays and rocks that make up the Warraberalgahl and Porumalgal Indigenous Protected Area (IPA). The IPA is recognised as part of the National Reserve System and was officially declared on the 18/07/2014.
PreviewThe purpose of this study was to quantify patterns in octocoral biodiversity and their environmental drivers on the GBR. The data are based on visual surveys of octocoral communities (soft corals and sea fans) on 163 GBR reefs.
PreviewThis project seeks to ensure that planning for the future development of the Torres Strait Islands is sustainable and capable of taking into account ecological and social information, assets, risk and existing infrastructure.

This project will monitor and study dugongs, dolphins and turtles along the coast of the GBRWHA with the following key tasks:

1. Determine the distribution and status of inshore dolphins in the northern Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area (GBRWHA) by identifying likely important habitats based on collaboration with Tradition Owners and published information, then conduct line transect surveys (along with biopsy samples) in the Cardwell area (Girringun) and Bathurst Bay (far northern GBR).

The objective of this project is to assess how management of local stressors such as land runoff can help improve the resilience of coral reefs to global stressors (climate change) which are more difficult to manage. Complementary laboratory and field experiments will investigate the combined impacts of declining water quality (increased nutrients and sediments, and reduced light and salinity), increased sea temperature and ocean acidification on key reef species groups such as corals, foraminifera, crown-of-thorns starfish and rock-boring sea urchins.

PreviewThis dataset is a composite of Landsat 5 satellite imagery to produce a cloud free, clear water seamless image of the Torres Strait region. This image includes some of Cape York and PNG, in particular the Fly river.
PreviewThe purpose of this study is to quantify spatial and temporal patterns in water quality of the GBR.

PreviewThis dataset corresponds to a shapefile that defines the COTS initiation zone for use in the evaluation of the merit of investment in surveillance and cull and reducing agricultural run off.

PreviewThis dataset consists of 546 records of vertebrate species across various sites in the rainforests and adjacent habitats of the Wet Tropics and the Eungella region.
