Marine life in the Great Barrier Reef

Protecting coral reefs in Queensland

Queensland, Australia, is home to the world’s largest coral reef. Its tropical and subtropical waters are unique and include spectacular habitats as well as endangered species.

Marine life in the sea off of the Queensland coast.

Opportunity

Our marine ecologists were consulted to ensure marine life and the surrounding environment would be protected as our client developed their energy infrastructure project.

Solution

As environmental standards advisor, we closely monitored the proposed development by studying action and management plans and by supporting the client in engaging and managing team members. We assessed the potential impacts of development on endangered marine species and habitats, including sensitive species that may have contributed to critical habitats, together with the need for further critical habitat assessment.

We oversaw marine verification and ensured that appropriate actions were undertaken to protect delicate habitats in line with state and federal permits, the client's action plans and global environmental guidelines.

Outcome

With our input, the client has gained valuable information to progress the project while prioritising the protection of marine life and complying with federal and state law.
