[Extract] The Great Barrier Reef (GBR) is the largest coral reef ecosystem on earth. In 1975, specific legislation for its protection led to the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park (GBRMP) being declared covering an area of 344 400 m2(about the size of Italy or Malaysia). The GBRMP meets the International Union for Conservation of Nature's (IUCN) definition of a marine protected area(MPA) being "...a clearly defined geographical space, recognised, dedicated and managed, through legal or other effectivemeans, to achieve the long-term conservation of nature with associated ecosystem services and cultural values" (Dudley,2008).
