What is the Waterbug Blitz?
The National Waterbug Blitz is Australia’s first nationwide waterway monitoring event.
Each year, Australians are encouraged to become ‘citizen scientists’ and investigate how healthy their local waterways and wetlands are, simply by exploring and identifying what waterbugs they contain. The type and number of waterbugs found in a waterway can tell us a lot about how healthy that waterway is.
Find out how to get involved, as anyone can participate.
