South Australia has thousands of kilometres of spectacular coastline, from the Coorong’s seemingly endless beaches to the rugged cliffs of the Great Australian Bight. The state’s marine waters are managed by a combination of local, State and Commonwealth governments. South Australian marine life is extraordinary and biodiverse but poorly understood. The conservation of South Australia’s marine environment depends on responsible management of urban, industrial and maritime activities.
