Abstract: There are 72 coastal urban centres (i.e. populations greater than 200) directly adjacent to the Great Barrier Reef coast, with four centres of populations greater than 50 000. It has been variously estimated that 70 to 90 per cent of coastal wetlands have been lost and many vegetation types on the remaining dune systems are now rated as ‘of concern’ or ‘endangered.’ There is expected to be a 40 per cent increase in the population living in the Great Barrier Reef catchment by 2026.
