A spatially explicit risk assessment is being performed to identify the hotspots of risk for cumulative threats in seagrass habitat across Australia. Seven current anthropogenic risks and three risks from future climate change predictions were identified and a risk level assigned.
A seagrass habitat map and the spatially explicit risk layers at a 10 × 10 km grid size across Australia have been finalised. The cumulative risk assessment is underway.
