Wild pollinator count

Printer-friendly version
12 Nov 2017 (All day)
Australia has lots of wild pollinator insects that are often overlooked. So far, we know that Australia has around 2,000 native bee species, all of which are important pollinators. We also know there are a couple of thousand butterfly, wasp, fly, moth, beetle, thrips and ant species, some of which are documented pollinators. Unfortunately, we don’t have a lot of information on the ecology of many of these insects, what flowers they pollinate, or where they are found.
The Wild Pollinator Count gives you an opportunity to contribute to wild pollinator insect conservation in Australia, simply by counting wild pollinators in your local environment, to help build a database on wild pollinator activity.
You can join in by watching any flowering plant for just ten minutes sometime in the 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!
Visit the Wild Pollinator Count website to find out how to count pollinators, identify the insects you see and submit your observations.
If you have any questions or comments about the count, please email us at wildpollinatorcount@gmail.com.
