Thank you to everyone who entered our Wild Pollinator Count & Slopes 2 Summit Photo Competition! We were excited by the diversity of wild pollinator insects captured by the entrants. Taking photos of pollinators can be tricky – even expert photographers have plenty of ‘near misses’ too. Taking photos can also be a great help in trying to identify the insect later, or to provide a record of your observation.
We are pleased to announce 10 prizewinners across the competition categories. We are grateful to Slopes 2 Summit and the NSW Government Environmental Trust for providing these prizes.
