Australian Pollinator Week
All of the world, insect and animal pollinators need our help. The Wild Pollinator Count project invites you to count wild pollinator insects in your local environment and help to build the Australian database on wild pollinator activity. You can participate anywhere in Australia by watching a flowering plant for ten minutes and reporting the insects you observe. You can arrange a community planting of a pollinator habitat garden, or arrange a class where people can build their own pollinator nest to take home and enjoy in their garden. You can also arrange a cinema screening of ‘The Pollinators’ near you, a documentary about the importance of pollinators and what we can do to help them.
You can get involved from home! Help out the bees and create a bee hotel for your yard or balcony. You can also buy or create bird baths and bird feeders to help your local birds.
Head to their website for more ideas about how you can be involved!
