ClimateWatch was developed in order to understand the effects that climate change is having on Australia’s plants and animals.
Climate change is affecting rainfall and temperature across Australia. As a consequence, flowering times, breeding cycles and migration movements are also changing. Scientists have very little data available to understand the impacts of this.
Your task is to observe and record what plants and animals are getting up to. Tell us when frogs are calling, birds are nesting and plants flower or leaves fall. The plants and animals have been selected by the Science Advisory Panel as easy to find and distribution. We can then unlock nature’s secrets to understand the changes caused by climate variations and scientists can find out what seasonal variations are occuring in Australia.
