Wild Pollinator Count

Ever wanted to learn more about Pollinator insects and why they are so important? Why not Join in the Wild Pollinator Count?

It's an easy activity you can do from the comfort of your own backyard, local park, bushland reserve, farmland or even whilst out walking in your neighbourhood. It's a great way to connect with nature and get to know some of the smaller visitors to your garden or neighbourhood.All you have to do is watch a flowering plant for ten minutes this week and let us know the insects that visit.

You can join in by watching any flowering plant for just ten minutes sometime in our count week.

  • You don’t need to be an insect expert.
  • You don’t need fancy gear.
  • You may be surprised by what you see!

Find out how to count pollinators, identify the insects you see and submit your observations. You can also download the Run Your Own Count kit and organise to count with a group.
