ClimateWatch is the best way to record the seasonal behaviour you see in plants and animals, and help scientists understand how Australia’s environment is responding to climate change.

    ClimateWatch offers the following features:
    * Easy to use interface
    * Ability to record your sightings even with poor mobile signal
    * Your location, date and time are recorded with each sighting
    * Take a photo and submit with your record
    * Species information - what to record, where, when and why
    * Species images to help you identify plants and animals
    * Bird, frog and mammal calls to help you identify animals
    * View your account details and sightings

    Our website ( is the online community where you can learn more about the ClimateWatch species, hear from scientists and other ClimateWatchers, and record what you observe.

    ClimateWatch was developed by Earthwatch with the Bureau of Meteorology and The University of Melbourne to understand how changes in temperature and rainfall are affecting the behaviour of Australia's plants and animals. The first project of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere, ClimateWatch enables every Australian to be involved in collecting and recording data that will help shape the country’s scientific response to climate change.

    This app has potential to be much better. Good idea but doesn't work properly on android phones regardless of model. Maybe the developers can accommodate for android users as well.

    I heard that changes and improvements were being made to this app, especially for people with a Samsung phone. Nothing has changed and still has the same problems

    Great app Idea! Would be even better if there weren't millions of bugs stopping you from entering information into habitat etc and even stopping you from sending the Recording entriely. Not sure if its just my version of Android on the S3 but it sure is annoying.
