Understanding where, when, and how many people use the coast is imperative for management of natural coastal assets, conservation of marine biodiversity and location of appropriate infrastructure. This CSIRO Wealth from Oceans National Research project is aimed at determining the spatial and temporal distribution of recreational activities within the reef lagoon system at Ningaloo Marine Park (NMP), and relating these patterns to factors such as biodiversity, geomorphology, park zoning, access roads and accommodation nodes.
