Title: Coral transplantation at tourism sites

Abstract: The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority (GBRMPA) recognises that the condition of tourism sites is important to the experience of visitors and to the successful presentation of the Marine Park and its World Heritage values. From time to time there may be a need to shorten the natural recovery periods of coral reefs to support site-based tourism operations. In those instances, managed coral transplantation may be considered a reasonable activity, however, it is costly and time consuming and not a common practice in the Marine Park.
