The park is developing a protocol to monitor Northern Map Turtles as they congregate to bask along rock outcrops and shorelines on Georgian Bay. The measure will be completed annually through field observations of suitable basking sites. Turtles are long-living slowly-reproducing reptiles and play an important role of scavengers and predators in freshwater ecosystems. By monitoring the park will be able to track changes over time, identify potential threats and thereby achieving conservation goals.

Forest birds are diverse in Ontario, with many species being common or very common on the Bruce Peninsula (i.e., American Redstart, Black-throated Green Warbler, Pileated Woodpecker. etc.). The national park monitors breeding forest birds (mostly songbirds and woodpeckers) with pre-programmed automated recorders at 20 sites (four routes), split equally between deciduous and coniferous forests.

Presence of exotic species often represents a level of disturbance in an ecosystem.The park samples invasive wetland plants along coastal transects, which include submerged areas. The focus of this measure are Eurasian watermilfoil and European phragmites. Currently the park has sufficient data only on the watermilfoil.

Most songbirds in Kluane National Park and Reserve are medium-distance migrants and could be threatened by habitat degradation along migration routes. Songbirds could also indicate whether Kluane’s forests have recovered essential components of habitat after the extensive spruce bark beetle outbreak in the late 1990s. Point counts for songbirds are conducted twice annually in June in a white spruce dominated forest according to the Alaska Landbird Monitoring Strategy protocol. Birds are identified to species and enumerated by sight and sound

The coast of South-Eastern Georgian Bay has numerous bays and inlets. This area is an important resource for drinking water, recreation and fish habitat. While offshore water quality of Georgian Bay is not impaired, nearshore embayments and inlets, in some instances, have been reported to experience water quality degradation. Concerns include excess nutrients, increased frequency of cyanobacteria blooms and hypoxia.

This measure consists of 2 field measurements: Tree Crown Conditions and Stem Defects. These parameters are used to assess overall forest health in the park, as a reduction in crown cover can provide early warning signs of change in forest stand health and succession.

The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. The Reducing phosphorus loads to Lake Simcoe and south-eastern Georgian Bay indicator reports the contribution projects funded by the Lake Simcoe Clean-Up Fund (April 2007 to March 2012) and Lake Simcoe / South-eastern Georgian Bay Clean-Up Fund (April 2012 to March 2017) are making toward reducing the amount of phosphorus reaching the water bodies from their watersheds. Changing how land is managed in the watershed helps to reduce the amount of phosphorus from rural and urban sources reaching Lake Simcoe and south-eastern Georgian Bay and to restore the lakes' health. This indicator is used to provide information about the state of the Lake Simcoe and south-eastern Georgian Bay basin and Canadian environment.

Measuring decay rate in GBINP allows tracking changes in soil condition and processes. Decay rate was measured by placing wooden sticks in different forest plots and comparing dry wieghts of the sticks before and after the placement, in approximately one year.
