In 1969, the veteran TV journalist Bob Raymond produced a documentary, Life and Death on the Great Barrier Reef. In it, he broadcast spectacular images of the reef at its best, colourful and crowded with fishes.
Part-way through the report Raymond showed viewers a reef littered with the coral-killing crown-of-thorns starfish which were beginning their ''insidious march'' along the length of the Barrier Reef. Read more
The Great Barrier Reef Outlook Report 2009 is a stock-take of the Great Barrier Reef, its management and its future.
The aim of the Outlook Report is to provide information about:
- The condition of the ecosystem of the Great Barrier Reef Region (including the ecosystem outside the Region where it affects the Region);
• Social and economic factors influencing the Great Barrier Reef ecosystem;
• Management effectiveness of the Great Barrier Reef; and
• Risk-based assessment of the long-term outlook for the Region.
The Report underpins decision-making for the long term protection of the Great Barrier Reef. It was prepared by the GBRMPA based on the best available information and was independently peer reviewed. Many people contributed to the development of the Outlook Report including:
• Australian and Queensland Government agencies
• Leading Great Barrier Reef scientists and researchers
• Industry representatives
• Advisory committees
• Members of regional communities and the public.
The publication of an Outlook Report was a key recommendation of the review of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Act 1975. A report is to be prepared every five years and given to the Minister for Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities for tabling in both houses of the Australian Parliament.
The Great Barrier Reef Outlook Report 2009 is the first of these reports.
