In March 2019, NQCC hosted a presentation of the Australia Institute's HeatWatch report for Townsville. The event included talks from Mark Ogge (Australia Institute's Principal Advisor), Dr Scott Heron (a coral reef expert working with JCU) and Des Bolton (a Burdekin farmer). It was enlightening to hear about the current and projected impacts of climate change on local communities, marine ecosystems and agriculture. For more information, read our Paperbark article here.
