Abstract: The coastal bird monitoring strategy for the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area (GBRWHA) outlines the value of coastal bird monitoring and sets out the minimum monitoring required. It is intended to assist managers to plan and program, as well as assist staff monitoring the birds to conduct their responsibilities. For a quick summary see Table 6 Summary of Minimum Level of Monitoring Required. Management of coastal birds in the GBRWHA is primarily the responsibility of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority (GBRMPA). Monitoring is part of the Day-to-Day Management (DDM) Program for the GBRWHA. The Great Barrier Reef/Coral Sea Seabird Workshop in June 1999 in Cairns endorsed the priorities in this monitoring strategy to ensure monitoring of coastal birds in the GBRWHA is effective and efficient.
