HELP US HELP OUR POLLINATORS !

 9 Dec 2022

ACT for Bees wants to know about the kinds of insects visiting flowers to design better plantings for pollinators and understand insect-plant interactions. We need you to help us by taking photos of the insects you see on flowers, then adding information about the kind of flower it is visiting and the insect's behaviour while on the flower. Just fill in the “Additional information” details when you add the sighting.

Find out more about ACT for Bees at:- https://actforbees.org/

For any enquiries ask CNM moderator Meredith Cosgrove.

For good examples of the kind sightings they are interested in see:

I have been pleased to help in this community effort by supplying good info about Dryandra Street Woodland pollinators. I would like to know whether there will be a report.
