Abstract In the last decade there has been increasing industrial and political pressure for the development of the resources of the Great Barrier Reef, Australia. As a result, conservation of the Reef is now probably one of the most important social and political issues in Australia. A strong conservation movement has developed which prevented the mining of a section of the Reef for lime. Additionally, after a national controversy, inquiries into both the development of a Reef oil industry and the damage caused by the Crown-of-thorns Starfish, have been instituted.
