The autumn 2017 Wild Pollinator Count starts this weekend!
You can count pollinators anywhere in Australia at any time between the morning of Sunday April 9 and the evening of Sunday April 16. All you need is 10 minutes to watch a flowering plant in your backyard or neighbourhood. The submission form will remain open for a few days after the count period, if you find it easier to count first and submit your data later.
Please follow the instructions on our How to Count page and submit your observations here. If you need help identifying the types of insects you are seeing, please have a look at our Resources page and read our Wild Pollinator Count FAQ.
If you’re new to Wild Pollinator Count, this blog post from last year details what we’re about and this page explains who is behind this independent citizen science project.
Please share your pollinator count experiences on social media, and don’t forget to include our official hashtag #OzPollinators to connect with us.
