About Nature

As residents of Earth, we are all at the mercy of Mother Nature and her seas, deserts, mountains and jungles, among many other harsh and unforgiving environments.

Anything created by humanity, and even humanity itself, can be destroyed by nature. Striking with little warning, hurricanes are among the most powerful natural disasters because of their size and potential for destruction.

Earthquakes can be equally devastating, killing thousands and changing the course of history. Tornadoes are relatively brief but violent, potentially causing winds in excess of 300 kilometres per hour.

Flooding is the most common natural hazards while only one sand geyser has been reported in human history. Australians are no strangers to drought, a natural disaster often exacerbated by widespread bushfires.

The biosphere, an umbrella term for all the parts of Earth where life exists, stretches from the deepest tree roots and the darkest ocean trenches to the most impenetrable rainforests and highest mountaintops.
