Green Cross Australia Encourages People to Take Snap of King Tide Today

Residents have been asked to take snap at any location along the coast as high tide event is expected to impact most Australian coastal areas today. Green Cross Australia is using photography to record tides expected today.

The particular interest of the study is erosion hotspots of Kingscliff, Belongil and Old Bar near Taree. According to experts, the peak of the tide is likely to vary but can be expected anytime between 9 and 10 am.

Due to the sun and moon's gravitational pull alignment, it creeps up onto the Illawarra's shores. It is known as a 'king tide'.

An environmental group has urged people to take the photographs of the event to create awareness of potential effects of climate change. Green Cross Australia came up with King Tides project so as to enable people to see what potential impacts the rising sea levels could have in future.

Green Cross Australia Chief Executive Mara Bun said the aim of their project was to educate and engage communities. "Our coasts are changing with storms and sea level rise, so it's important that the Illawarra community is empowered to think ahead about choices we'll need to make in response", she said.
