The Authority has been providing world-leading marine park management since 1975.

[Extract] The crown-of-thorns seastar (COTS), Acanthaster planci, is one of the main contributors to declines in coral cover on the Great Barrier Reef (GBR), and remains one of the major acute disturbances on coral reefs throughout much of the Indo-Pacific. The aim of this project is to investigate important ecological thresholds and relationships to inform the management of COTS. To do this w ...

[Extract] In this unit, students will explore one or more habitats within their local environment. They will identify external features of different plants and animals and how their needs are met in the habitats they live in. Students will identify and describe changes to local habitats as a result of human activity and suggest how science helps people care for their local habitats.

[Extract] In this unit, students will investigate living and non-living things (including things on the Great Barrier Reef). They will observe and group things as living or non-living based on observable features. They will explore the characteristics of living things. Students will identify natural and human threats to living things on the Reef and recognise how science can help people unders ...

[Extract] In this unit, students will investigate marine turtles and their life cycles. They will explore the relationship between the survival needs of marine turtles and the habitats they live in, including interactions with other living things. By considering changes to the habitats, such as coastal development and climate change, students will predict the effect of these changes on marine ...

[Extract] In this unit, students will investigate structural and behavioural adaptations of animals and plants. They will understand how these adaptations help animals and plants survive in the environments they live in. Students will recognise how science knowledge, such as knowing how adaptations in living things help them survive in their environments, can be used to inform personal and com ...

[Extract] In this unit, students will investigate different wetland types. They will describe how wetlands are part of the water cycle. Students will identify different animals that live in wetlands and group and classify them. Students will recognise and understand the interactions between living things in food chains and food webs in a wetland, and how human activity can affect these interac ...

[Extract] In this mini unit, students will observe different animal and plant cells under the microscope. They will investigate the structure and function of different animal cells and observe and describe the function of chloroplast in plant cells. Students will investigate zooxanthellae and their symbiotic relationship with coral and use this understanding to explain coral bleaching. Student ...

[Extract] In this mini unit, students will investigate starch production in leaves and understand how plants use the sunlight energy to produce food. Students will explore energy flow in food webs within ecosystems. Students will identify the biotic and abiotic components of ecosystems and understand how these interact and relate to energy flow. Students will investigate how changing abiotic f ...

[Excerpt] This project was funded by the Fisheries Research and Development Corporation (project number 2013-018). The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority also provided funding for the Coral Trout component of the research. We wish to thank both funders for their support. We thank staff at the FRDC, members of the Queensland FRAB, the Queensland Government Department for Agriculture and F ...

[Extract] Indicators representative of ecosystem condition are required for the long-term monitoring of the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) in a Reef Integrated Monitoring and Reporting Program (RIMREP), which tracks progress towards Reef 2050 Plan targets and objectives. Seagrass meadows are highly sensitive to climatic conditions and environmental pressures such as water quality, as seen through re ...
