Description

The Monash Science and Innovation Hub invites you to participate in the National Waterbug Blitz


The National Waterbug Blitz is Australia’s first nationwide, Citizen Science, waterway monitoring event. Over the month of October Australians are encouraged to discover how healthy their local waterways and wetlands are, simply by exploring and identifying what waterbugs live in them.

This initiative provides training through downloads and apps. In addition, Monash Science and Innovation Partners will have Waterbug Kits available for loan over the month of October.
