Sunshine Coast Streamkeepers Temperature Logger Data

Map and Visualize

The Sunshine Coast Streamkeepers Society initiated the “Climate Change and Salmonid: Recording Creek Water/Air Temperatures” in 2021. The purpose of this project is to continually monitor the temperatures of the salmon bearing creeks on the Sunshine Coast. As we experience more and more unprecedented weather events, mainly the longer, dryer and hotter summers leading to record drought conditions, we will have the historical data to compare the creek’s water temperatures at one-hour intervals from one year to the next. We believe the greatest threat to wild salmon and their habitat is climate change. We must be equipped with knowledge of what is happening in the field to find ways to mitigate the effects of these warmer conditions on the mortality of salmon.

Funding Sources

We very much appreciate the ongoing support of Pacific Salmon Foundation. They have provided the necessary funding for this project “Climate Change & Salmonid: Recording Creek Water/Air Temperatures” enabling us to purchase the temperature loggers and equipment necessary to install them into the creeks. We are also grateful to have received donations of temperature loggers from our local DFO Community Advisor and for their ongoing support.
