Feature Pollutant – Heatwave
Pollutant: High Temperatures
Source: Climate Change
Our creeks and rivers are sensitive to overheating. Heat waves and rising temperatures can cause deadly outbreaks of blue-green algae. It can also reduce the amount of dissolved oxygen in the water so that the poor fish can’t breath. Heat waves have also been blamed for the mass coral bleaching on the Great Barrier Reef.
Here’s what you can do: Reduce electricity wastage. Reduce car trips by using your bike or public transport. Plant a tree!
