A talk by Professor Gretta Pecl, with music by Michael Fortescue.
Climate change and rising sea temperatures are pushing Australian coastal marine species south, in search of cooler waters and more suitable habitat. But Tasmania’s east coast is pretty much the stop of last resort for many vulnerable species. To those gazing out over the dazzling Wineglass Bay, the changes occurring below the surface may be invisible, but their effects are already altering our ecosystems and ways of life.
The suggested walking location for this episode is Wineglass Bay Walk, Freycinet National Park, Tasmania.
