Future monitoring directions

The objectives for Parks Victoria’s marine monitoring programs are being reviewed.

Parks Victoria has adopted an Adaptive Management Framework and is progressing towards a natural asset based approach to management. This includes the development of clearer and more specific conservation outcome statements about the desired condition of the natural assets they were established to conserve and the acceptable level of threat to those assets.

A review of the monitoring program is planned for 2013. The objectives for the existing monitoring programs will be re-assessed and linked to relevant conservation outcomes to ensure these programs continue to inform Parks Victoria’s management of MPAs.

The review will also identify any critical gaps and priorities for expanding the monitoring program in the future.

A targeted analysis of monitoring data in relation to conservation outcomes for each marine national park and sanctuary will be carried out by 2013.
