Wild Pollinator Count – what’s involved?

You can join Australia’s original pollinator citizen science project between 12-19 of April to help count wild pollinators in your local environment and help build the database on wild pollinator activity.

European honeybees get lots of attention, but here is your chance to learn about Australia’s native bees as well as help Manu understand what butterflies, flies, moths, wasps and other insects pollinate our plants.

You can join in by watching any flowering plant for just ten minutes sometime in our count week.

  • You don’t need to be an insect expert.
  • You don’t need fancy gear.
  • You may be surprised by what you see!

Go to the website for details on how to get involved. And please share your photos using the official hashtag #ozpollinators. Manu will be checking in on your progress!
