Abstract
Located in the Eyre Bioregion, the Western Kangaroo Island Marine Park is situated between Cape Forbin and Sanderson Bay, including the Casuarina Islets and Lipson Reef. The marine park includes both the North and South Casuarina Islets as part of Flinders Chase National Park. Impacts of implementing the draft management plans were assessed against a base case scenario of no management plans. The base case is not static, and requires an understanding of the existing trends in natural resource, economic and social conditions. There are external factors which influence both the 'with management plan' and the base case scenarios that were taken into consideration.
