Natural values

Australian Marine Parks have natural, cultural, heritage and socio-economic values. The natural values of marine parks refer to the habitats, species and ecological communities within them, and the processes that support their connectivity, productivity and function. The maps below plot key natural value datasets that underpin the design and ongoing managment of Australian marine parks. For information on other park values and the pressures acting upon them, please refer to the relevant management plans on the Parks Australia website.
