This unit covers the diversity of marine wildlife groups, the role of wildlife in marine systems, the ecological and physiological adaptations of wildlife to the marine environment (including life history traits and basic biology), and the threatening processes and major issues affecting the conservation of marine wildlife in Australia (e.g. commercial fisheries, human disturbance, marine debris).
