"One of the greatest challenges for Great Barrier Reef managers is to understand the role played by coastal ecosystems in maintaining the health and resilience of the Great Barrier Reef.  There has been growing recognition of the important role the catchment plays in influencing the water quality and quantity that flows to the Great Barrier Reef and the need to manage the landscape to support the long term health of the Great Barrier Reef.  The Great Barrier Reef coastal ecosystem project has been initiated to better understand the value of coastal ecosystems, their function and role in the resilience of Great Barrier Reef ecosystems."
