Outlook Report 2019

Published every five years, the 2019 Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority's Outlook Report examines the Great Barrier Reef's health, pressures, and likely future. The 2019 report is the third comprehensive report in the series, and identifies the Great Barrier Reef Region still faces significant pressures ranging in scale from local to global.

When enjoying the many different activities and experiences on the Great Barrier Reef, it is important to enjoy them in a responsible and 'reef friendly' way. We have a range of educational resources for teachers and students about responsible reef practices.
