Welcome to Climate Girl!
My goal for this website is to communicate different issues about the environment, in particular climate change and ecology to kids around the world. I became really interested in the environment when I was about six years old, I am now 17.
Climate Girl is focussed on solutions, a catalyst for change, politically neutral, passionate, optimistic, realistic and most importantly educational. My aim for Climate Girl is to inspire, engage, and activate individuals (children and youth), communities and schools to become agents of change.
I am passionate about our oceans and marine life. I have grown up surfing the local breaks and sometimes sharing the waves with a pod of doplhins which is amazing! Two facts that keep me motivated to take action to protect our oceans are one, in some parts of the ocean there is more plastic than plankton and two, the first plastic ever made is still in existance today. Our marine life face serious issues because of climate change and because of the waste that ends up in our oceans.
I wrote a blog about all different things about the enviornment for the Australian Museum Sydney, here is the link: http://www.australianmuseum.net.au/news-blogs
As I go on adventures with my environment work I will share what I have learnt with you so that together we become well informed adults that can tackle the environmental issues we will unfortunately inherit. Together we can make a difference!
Have a look around the site and send me an email about what you think or have a suggestion on what I could include that will interest other kids. I will try to share some of your thoughts on the website too.
It is fun learning about the environment and the more you learn about it I hope the more you will do to help protect it!

Only after the last tree has been cut down,
Only after the last river has been poisoned,
Only after the last fish has been caught,
Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten.
