ACT Pollinator Citizen Science Project

October 25, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

This October 2023, citizen science surveys of insect pollinators will commence as part of the Canberra Urban Biodiversity Surveys (CUBS), an exciting new initiative from the ACT Government. Ecologists in the Office of Nature Conservation are calling upon enthusiastic volunteers to conduct simple 30-minute visual surveys of insect pollinators interacting with floral resources at designated monitoring sites. All you need is a camera to capture photos of these pollinators and a computer to upload the photos as a survey to Canberra Nature Map. Be sure to stay tuned to the Canberra Nature Map home page for upcoming details and an official call for volunteers. Your participation will not only contribute to important research on urban biodiversity but also enrich your connection with the fascinating world of insect pollinators! Here is a map that shows all sites (and a 50m buffer around them for surveying purposes)
Surveys should take around 45 minutes and will need to be completed at least once a month, or more if people are keen. These are the sites that are currently remaining: Mulanggari NR, North Mitchell Grassland, Kenny, Crace Grasslands Offset, Franklin Grasslands South, Dunlop Grassland East, Yarralumla Grassland West, Commonwealth Park,  Fadden Pines,Tuggeranong Hill NR, Jerrabomberra East Offset.
