We hope you’ve had fun counting pollinators this week. The cold snap across the south-east early in the week wasn’t ideal weather for pollinator spotting! But luckily, it warmed up again quickly, with ideal pollinator sampling conditions across most of the country for the rest of the week. We even got our first ever observation from the Northern Territory, despite the cyclonic weather they are battling up there!
The Autumn 2017 National Wild Pollinator Count ends Sunday April 16th. So if you haven’t done a count yet, there’s still time! You can conduct a 10 minute observation of any flowering plant, anywhere in Australia, at any time until Sunday evening.
The submission form will remain open until April 23rd to give you time to enter your observation data online. But remember, we can’t accept any observations that were conducted after the 16th.
A results summary of this autumn count will be posted here on the blog at the end of April.
If you missed out on counting this time, don’t worry…the spring 2017 count will run from November 12-19.
See you next time!
