Are you concerned about the environment? Do you want to help preserve the natural heritage of Australia for generations to come? Then get involved with the ClimateWatch App - the first continental phenology project in the Southern Hemisphere - and be part of an active community making a real difference to the future of our planet.

What is phenology?

Phenology is the study of periodic plant and animal life cycle events and how these are influenced by seasonal and interannual variations in climate. Monitoring phenology is important as changes can impact entire biological communities, our food sources and our health.

ClimateWatch is for everyone!

You can collect and record observations of Mammals, Birds, Insects, Amphibians, Marine, Plants, Spiders or Reptiles. The data you collect year round helps policy-makers and land managers make informed decisions about climate change mitigation and adaptation plans for Australia's plants and animals. You are contributing directly to climate science and taking climate action by being part of the ClimateWatch community.

You can ClimateWatch anywhere in Australia, even out at sea. There are over 80 ClimateWatch trails across the country.

Why get involved?

  • Learn how climate change is affecting Australia's plants and animals-
  • Become an observer and help monitor biodiversity
  • Make a real difference in your local community
