CELEBRATING AUSTRALIA'S
MARINE BIODIVERSITY

Australia's marine environment stretches 3,700 kilometres from north to the south and over 4,000 kilometres east to west. It supports many different types of habitats including coral reefs, seagrass meadows, mangrove forests, rocky reefs and kelp forests, and open oceanic waters.
Each of these habitats support a diverse range of living things - marine biodiversity. When it comes to considering the number of species that inhabit our marine and coastal waters, Australia is a mega-diverse nation.
