An initiative of Earthwatch Institute


Being a ClimateWatcher is simple. You can record on species you see near you, contribute to national activities or visit ClimateWatch trails.

Through regularly walking a ClimateWatch trail and recording what you see you can discover what is happening in your local environment and contribute to a national program that helps scientists inform Australia’s response to climate change. Walking the trail with a group gives you the opportunity to share the experience with others.

Find ClimateWatch trails in your area or discover how you can create a trail at a location that is important to you.
