    • Hi Paul, We don’t, but we’re also happy for participants to use a common name or to send us a photo of the plant, if they’d like help for a submission. Or maybe you’re suggesting you know one that we should link to?


  1. Hi Karen, we are looking to do a pollinator count in November this year (2019) and are hoping to get a local school engaged. We are looking for an educator who might like to give a talk about pollinators and their importance to a group of primary school students. Can you recommend anyone who might be interested in this? We are based in Sunshine Victoria.


  2. Hi, Karen. I’m in WA and use your pollinator count as a class activity for my Year 10 Animal Production course. I realise that some of our pollinators differ to yours but I’ve endeavoured to find supplementary information re local pollinators. Thank you for providing this wonderful project.
