Spring Wild Pollinator Count finishes this Sunday November 21, so it’s your last chance to do a count this weekend! Thank you to everyone who has contributed a count already.
As usual, we will leave the submission form open for one week, to allow you time to get your counts submitted. But remember, we can only accept counts that were done during the count week 14-21 November.
After submissions close on November 21, we will start collating the data and hope to have results posted by the end of the year.
It’s almost time to join in on a Wild Pollinator Count. The spring 2021 count runs from 14-21 November.
This will be the last chance to contribute to our count data! We are taking a break after this count to analyse the data so far and to focus on other commitments. We hope you continue looking out for wild pollinators in your backyard, even though we won’t be running coordinated counts for a while.
During the count week, you just need to take 10 minutes to watch a flowering plant and count the number of different flower visitors you see. Find out more about How to Count here. Remember, you should only watch a single flowering plant – we cannot accept observations that have observed multiple different plants at once within a garden.
Thank you to everyone who joined in the Wild Pollinator Count last week!
Just a reminder the submission form will remain open until this Sunday 25 April to give you time to enter your observations – remember we can only accept counts conducted during the count week 11-18 April.
Once the submission form closes, we will start cleaning and collating the data. Results will be posted here sometime in May!
Wild Pollinator Count time has rolled around again. The autumn 2021 count runs from 11-18 April.
This has been another challenging summer in many parts of Australia, with fires on the west and floods on the east, so you may see a change in your local pollinators. Hope you are all safe.

Spring 2020 Wild Pollinator Count starts Sunday 8th November. You have until Sunday 15th November to do a count. You can do as many 10 minute counts as you want, any time during the count week, from anywhere in Australia!
Find out How to Count here. Remember, each count must focus on one flowering plant. Find out more about the science behind our method on our FAQ page. You don’t need to take photos to submit a count, but you’re welcome to share them with us if you do – you can do this via email or via our iNaturalist project page.
The autumn 2020 Wild Pollinator Count is now over. Thank you to everyone who has contributed this time, we hope you get as much out of watching insects on flowers as we do!
If you shared photos or links seeking help with identification please bear with us. We’re thrilled with the huge response to this round of the count and working hard to reply to those requests.
The submission form will stay open until next weekend (April 26), so you have plenty of time to submit your observations if you haven’t done so yet. We will post a results summary here on the blog in May.
