The Australian continent, together with its islands and marine areas, manifests high levels of biodiversity.
It has a comprehensive and globally recognized legislative and policy regime for terrestrial and marine

Biodiversity conservation (under legal protections of varying strictness) and multiple uses (set out by zoning and related regulations) apply in both the GBR WHA and the WT WHA.
