COASTAL residents are being encouraged to photograph their local king tide to highlight the impacts of rising sea levels as part of the Witness King Tides project, with king tides reaching the Bundaberg coast this Saturday at 8.57am.

Green Cross Australia is encouraging coastal communities to take photos during the upcoming king tides season for Witness King Tides - an initiative that will help Australians understand the impacts of sea level rise in their local area.

Green Cross Australia CEO Mara Bún said sharing photos allowed people to visualise how flooding from rising sea levels will impact our beaches, coastal areas and shoreline communities in the future.

"Witness King Tides will help us to identify and understand the impacts of rising sea levels on our beaches, coastal areas and shoreline communities," Ms Bún said.

"Through gathering and sharing visual data, we raise awareness around Australia and can adapt for the future." Ms Bún said. 

The Witness King Tides campaign asks coastal communities around Australia to submit images of king tides to raise awareness of the threats posed by climate change and rising sea levels.
