Biological and habitat monitoring
The Queensland Government conducts a number of biological and habitat monitoring programs. Information collected via Ecosystem Health Monitoring Programs (EHMPs) assists the department, local councils and other managers to make decisions and help reduce the impact of both natural pressures and human activities.
Biological and habitat monitoring activities include:
- Coastal and estuarine algal (Lyngbya)
- Coral monitoring
- Introduced aquatic pests
- Marine and freshwater turtle monitoring
- Marine wildlife strandings
- Riparian vegetation
