"A change of 1-2 degrees will mean 90% of the ‘core habitat’ in Australia’s wet tropics will be lost. With a 2-3 degree increase 97% the Great Barrier Reef will be bleached every year."  CSIRO research

How it works?

By regularly coming back to the ClimateWatch website and recording information about the species you are watching, you are helping scientists across Australia better understand our natural environment. The information you collect and enter online will then be used to assist scientists, policy makers and land managers to understand and take appropriate measures to deal with the impact of climate change.
