Australia’s climate is changing

Gippsland has experienced the impacts of climate change that have posed risks to people, animals, and our beautiful environment. We have suffered extreme weather events including; heatwaves, storms, floods, draughts, and fire events that have threatened communities, agriculture, and industry. Our coastal communities are facing inundation, erosion, and sea level rise.

We must act now to avoid the worst climate change scenarios predicted.  We can adapt the way we live. We can make a difference.

Understanding Climate Change – Department of Climate Change, Energy the Environment and Water (Aus Gov)
