The Draft South-east Commonwealth Marine Reserves (CMR) Network management plan 2012-22, released in July this year, identifies the Governmentís intent to better understand the species, communities, habitats and ecosystems protected by the network, and establish a monitoring program to evaluate the effectiveness of management arrangements for protecting these conservation values. This is where the National Environmental Research Programís (NERP) Marine Biodiversity Hub comes in. The NERP Marine Biodiversity Hub is a national, collaborative program that draws together the knowledge and skills from seven research institutions and researchers. The Hubís National Monitoring, Evaluation and Reporting Theme is developing a blueprint for the long-term monitoring of the CMR network.
