What is Planetary Health?
Planetary Health links the things we do, with the health of people and the health of the planet.
Council's Planetary Health Initiative invited everyone to become citizen scientists and join the Pollinator Count from November 14 to 21 2021.
Grab a hat and some sunscreen and get outdoors to spot pollinators for this exciting national science project.
You can contribute from your own garden or while on a bushwalk. Just select a flowering plant and observe the insects that visit it in 10 minutes.
The insects observed and counted will go to a national database dedicated to wild pollinator insect conservation in Australia.
You can find downloadable data sheets and ID guides at https://wildpollinatorcount.com
You can also take photos and upload them to the i-naturalist project here https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/wild-pollinator-count
