|Green Cross Australia's website, Witness King Tides, has been honoured with an Outstanding Achievement award at the 2012 Interactive Media Awards. Green Cross Australia, along with our web developers ZeroSeven, won the award in the "Advocacy" category.|
Each summer, high spring tides, known as king tides, demonstrate what our coasts might look like in the future under conditions of sea level rise due to climate change.
During the 2011/12 summer, we encouraged Queenslanders to head out to the coast during the king tide to capture the event and help create a photographic database. Having this visual collection of images could help us be better prepared for a future where sea levels are higher than what they are today. If we can envisage future change, we can plan and prepare for it now.
