Bellingen district map if sea levels rise.

Click for more on my bioregion
This Google flood page shows what will happen to the Bellingen district if the sea level rises by one metre.

Bellingen is 15 metres above sea level, and scientists are predicting at least a 1-metre rise in sea levels by 2100 less than a century from now. Some estimates are very much higher.

So, play with Google's sea level rises and drag the page to Bellingen and its local seaboard to get an idea of what might lie ahead if salt water floods Bellingen. I dips me lid to Almaniac Colin Tonks for this tip.
