Darwin’s ancestor tests climate change in Australia

"The great-great-grandson of Charles Darwin will today officially open a climate change observatory in Western Australia. Chris Darwin and Bush Heritage Australia bought the land more than 300 kilometres north-east of Perth for preservation purposes. The area will be used to monitor the effects of climate change on the environment over the next 30-years"

"Charles Darwin Reserve, otherwise known as White Wells Station, is a 68,600 hectare former sheep station located four hours north-east of Perth, Western Australia. Charles Darwin Reserve is situated on the traditional lands of the Badimia, Widi and Binyardi peoples and represents a precious remnant of vegetation that once covered thousands of square kilometres."
