Marine Protected Areas Program Plan 2012-14

MPA Program Plan coverThe Marine Protected Areas Program Plan 2012–14 will guide the management of the state’s Marine Protected Areas including all Marine National Parks and Marine Sanctuaries, Marine and Coastal Parks, Marine Parks and the Marine Reserve.

  • Applies adaptive management to the 12 program areas.
  • Describes the role of Conservation Outcomes in setting clear goals for the marine program over time.
  • Identifies responsibilities for delivery, establishes performance measures and indicators, and includes a timeline for implementation.
