Abstract: Defence activities in the Great Barrier Reef directly contribute to the training and operations of Australia's defence services and the majority have negligible impacts on the Great Barrier Reef ecosystem. Many defence activities are conducted with dedicated shipboard and aerial observers. These personnel are able to collect data on marine wildlife sightings, as well as ensure activities are delayed if required. Defence activities undergo thorough assessment, coordination and planning. In addition, the management agreement between the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority and Department of Defence ensures a shared understanding of potential threats to Great Barrier Reef values, external influences and key stakeholder issues.
