Here are a few examples:
Bring education alive inside the classroom and inspire the next generation of environmental ambassadors.
Give young people the opportunity to learn new skills and build their self-confidence through tailored experiential learning in the field.
Provide genuine field-research experience for tertiary students.
Support the next generation of emerging scientists and conservationists from developing countries in our region.
ClimateWatch is a climate change monitoring program that will allow every Australian to be involved in collecting and recording data that will help shape the Australia’s scientific response to climate change. The first project of its kind in the southern hemisphere, ClimateWatch will allow local community groups, individuals and businesses to get hands-on in the science of understanding climate change by simply observing nature from their own backyard, while out bushwalking or at school then recording it.
Climate change effects rainfall and temperature that are causing changes in plant flowering times and animal breeding cycles. Earthwatch Australia’s Scientific Advisory Committee Chair, Professor Mark Burgman, says the ClimateWatch recordings will be critical to our understanding of the impact of climate change on the Australian environment
