Activities

The data is used to help build management strategies for species into the future.

Skills

  • Teamwork
  • Species identification (climate-sensitive flora and fauna)
  • Improved understanding of climate change
  • Trained ClimateWatcher

The Science

ClimateWatch is the first continental-scale phenology research program in the southern hemisphere. Data is used to help build management strategies for species into the future. Participants are encouraged to continue using the app from home contributing to national data on an ongoing basis.
