The Queensland Government has announced a range of new initiatives and targets to protect the Great Barrier Reef.
The Great Barrier Reef is the world’s largest and most complex reef system covering an area of around 70 million football fields.
The Great Barrier Reef has been recognised as a World Heritage Area since 1981 and remains one of the best managed marine areas in the world.
The Australian and Queensland governments have strongly welcomed the final and unanimous decision of the UNESCO World Heritage Committee to not place the Great Barrier Reef on its world heritage 'in danger' list.
The Queensland Government has established a new Great Barrier Reef Water Science Taskforce to provide advice about the best way to achieve its ambitious water quality targets.
The Australian and Queensland governments have a 35-year plan for protecting and managing the Great Barrier Reef.
