Polar marine environments are full of a cacophony of sound. monitoring are often ad hoc, lacking any systematic framework or integration with one another. The open ocean and deep seafloor habitats make up over 70% of the total surface area of Earth, but many of these areas remain relatively poorly studied. Francisco Dallmeier and Dr. Alfonso Alonsodeveloped a Framework for the Assessment and Monitoring of Biodiversity. In partnership with relevant agencies and institutions, SANBI also aims to develop a comprehensive yet pragmatic National Biodiversity Monitoring Framework that is aligned with international biodiversity monitoring and assessment initiatives and commitments, as well as national legislation and policy. Monitoring of biodiversity is essential in several ways: It guides management action by providing data on threats/impacts from human interactions or changing environmental conditions. The National Environmental Management Biodiversity Act of 2004, states that SANBI must monitor and report regularly to the Minister on: SANBI’s work in this regard is diverse, and includes large programmes of work such as SANBI’s Threatened Species Programme, the Invasive Species Programme, the National Biodiversity Assessment and many more.
