Some of the biggest impacts of our changing climate are happening not on land, but occurring underwater.
Global climate models predict that the greatest warming in the Southern Hemisphere oceans will be in the Tasman Sea, the stretch of water that reaches from New South Wales to Tasmania and across to New Zealand, with significant impacts for south eastern Australia.
In Victoria the symptoms of climate change are already happening on scale along the east coast of Victoria in places like Beware Reef Marine Sanctuary.
