Earth has just experienced its hottest month since records began and Australia is now gearing up for an El Niño-fuelled summer.

Extreme heat isn’t just challenging for humans – it affects our beloved pets too.

The University of Queensland’s Dr Edward Narayan and his team have been examining how climate change affects the welfare of animals, including our pets.

Join us at next month’s BrisScience, where Dr Narayan will take a look at how various types of pets – and other animals, such as koalas and livestock – will fare in a warming world, and how we can help them.
