TitleCoral Sea: Biological Important Areas - Seabirds (DSEWPaC)
AbstractWork has been undertaken through the marine bioregional planning program to identify, describe and map biologically important areas (BIAs) for protected species under the EPBC Act. BIAs spatially and temporally define areas where protected species display biologically important behaviours (including breeeding, foraging, resting or migration), based on the best available scientific information. These areas are those parts of a marine region that are particularly important for the conservation of protected species. In collecting information on BIAs, the Department has explicitly aimed to collect information about known important areas and about areas that area likely to be or may be important for a protected species. This approach was taken to ensure that: the BIAs identified did not simply represent survey effort but identified areas that scientists consider are likely to be biologically important for a protected species. BIA are accompanied by comprehensive data attributes which enable decision-makers and people proposing to undertake actions that may have significant impact on matters of national environmental significance, to assess the relevance of the information to their specific circumstances. BIAs have been identified in the Coral Sea region for the following seabirds:
Brown booby (Sula leucogaster
Black-naped tern (Sterna sumatrana)
Black noddy (Anous minutus)
Bridled tern (Onychoprion anaethetus)
Common noddy (Anous stolidus)
Crested tern (Sterna bergii)
Greater frigatebird (Fregata minor)
Lesser frigatebird (Fregata ariel)
Masked booby (Sula dactylatra)
Red-footed booby (Sula sula)
Red-tailed tropicbird (Phaethon ribricauda)
Sooty tern (Sterna fuscata)
Wedge-tailed shearwater (Puffinus pacificus)

Lineage
The BIA spatial data was captured via discussions and workshops with numerous species experts and/or through projects with key scientists. Each polygon was validated for spatial consistency, using the scientific knowledge of the species along with comprehensive feedback provided by the experts. While the polygons are not comprehensive nor represent absolutes limits they represent the biologically important areas that have been identified to date. With further research, other important areas may be identified and/or the area identified in this data may be refined. The aim of the detailed attribute information is to provide details about the data that cannot be spatially defined such as source information.
