Climate change exhibition

NZ science showcase on climate heads to Tonga

The museum's Craig Grant said the Far From Frozen exhibition would be taken to schools with the aim of explaining some of the science behind climate change and its effects in the islands.

Dr Grant said topics covered would include sea-level rise, extreme weather events and the bleaching of coral reefs.

"Getting them to understand things like fossil fuels being burned and the Co2 going into the atmosphere," he said.

"And a lot of it goes into the ocean and that can make the ocean more acidic.
