Abstract: The way in which the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority (GBRMPA) manages for the conservation of species in the GBRMP is determined mainly by legislative instruments and policy decisions, which are supported by education and enforcement. Given the migratory nature of many species, the GBRMPA works closely with other Australian and Queensland Government agencies to ensure complementary management approaches as far as possible. This Report is a compendium of information on the fauna and flora of the GBRWHA and explains the rationale behind the work priorities of the Species Conservation Program of the GBRMPA, which focuses on the management of threatened species. The Report will be reviewed and updated as additional information becomes available and in the light of changes to conservation priorities.
