Pollinators are animals and insects that carry pollen from one plant to another to enable that plant to reproduce. There are lots of different pollinators in the natural world. Crawling and flying insects, spiders, birds, small mammals, even the wind are among this group. Australia has some unique pollinators that are attracted to and feed on the native flowering plants we have here.
What types of pollinators can you see in your backyard or local reserve? Can you identify and count them? We’ve created an Australian pollinator scavenger hunt that you can print and do on your nature walks. This printable has been beautifully hand-illustrated by bush playgroup facilitator and artist Kate Rijs.
