The Marine Monitoring Program (the program) was established in 2005 to monitor the inshore health of the Great Barrier Reef.

The program will inform the development of the Reef 2050 Integrated Monitoring and Reporting Program.

The program monitors the condition and trend of inshore water quality and the health and resilience of inshore seagrass meadows and coral reefs.

Understanding how the resilience of the Reef is affected by pressures is vital for management. Monitoring the inshore health of the Reef has been routinely carried out since 2005 under this program.
