ClimateWatch is a Banksia Awards 2012 Finalist

ClimateWatch has had some exciting news with the recent announcement of being a finalist in the 2012 Banksia awards for education. This is a wonderful achievement for the program that should bring national awareness to ClimateWatch.

ClimateWatch was developed by Earthwatch with the Bureau of Meteorology and the University of Melbourne to understand how climate change is affecting the seasonal behaviour of Australia's plants and animals.  Rio Tinto is the founding sponsor of ClimateWatch and the program is supported by the Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation. Leighton Contractors and Woodside are major sponsors.

The awards will be announced on Friday October 26.
