The Conservation Values Atlas is an interactive web-based tool for displaying geospatial data on conservation values within Australia's marine environment including:
- protected areas such as marine parks and world heritage areas
- key ecological features
- biologically important areas
The Conservation Values Atlas is an important source of information for people who wish to undertake new ocean-based activities. It provides information for anyone who has a responsibility or interest in conserving marine habitats and species.

Biologically Important Areas
The Australian Government is undertaking a review of the Biologically Important Areas for protected marine species (BIAs). This includes:
- Australian sea lions
- marine turtles
The BIA review includes an update of the Protocol for the Designation of Biologically Important Areas for Protected Marine Species (the BIA Protocol) and the geospatial data for priority protected marine species.
Updated BIA geospatial data can be viewed on the Conservation Values Atlas. For current information regarding BIA updates for individual species refer to BIA. For further information on the BIA review contact the BIA review team at BIAReview@dcceew.gov.au.
