Commonwealth marine reserves
Australia is a marine nation. We are surrounded by magnificent oceans that are the envy of the world. These oceans are one of our most important and beautiful natural resources. They are part of the Australian way of life.
As a nation we want the incredible diversity of life in our oceans to be protected and allowed to thrive. At the same time, we want to enjoy, in a sustainable way, the benefits that our oceans provide. With good planning and management based on science, marine reserves can help us to do this.
