The Climatewatch Initiative
Climatewatch is an initiative of the Earthwatch Institute of Australia. It is aimed at people of all ages - Australia wide, to join forces in gathering data to aid scientists in their research on climate change. Come to Piney Lakes Environmental Education Centre to learn what the Earthwatch Institute of Australia is doing to aid in the research on climate change.
The Climatewatch Initiative was launched in 2010, and a pilot trail for data collection was created at Piney Lakes Reserve. We need to gather lots of information about the flowering patterns of plants and the behaviour of animals so that scientists may make predictions about how the changes in weather patterns are affecting them.
When they can determine what's happening and how they are being affected, we will have more knowledge to ensure the future sustainability of our flora and fauna populations in Western Australia, and the world over.
