Current Bleaching Conditions Report from the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park
Authority for March 2007

Observations of regional sea surface temperatures continue to be below
levels known to cause severe coral bleaching (NOAA, ReefTemp) and, based on
climate predictions and current conditions (POAMA), the threat of
widespread coral bleaching for the Great Barrier Reef region has passed.
This is the final Current Conditions Report for the summer of 2006-07.

The Climate Change Response Program, an initiative of the Great Barrier
Reef Marine Park Authority, provides regular reports on bleaching
conditions on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef throughout summer and
publishes early warnings of increased stress levels or widespread coral
bleaching. The Current Conditions Report is compiled by the climate change
team and is available at:
