Covers a range of services, from invertebrate identification to presenting talks to various groups on threatened insect species and conservation.
We also offer field collecting surveys of insects and related species with the use of various techniques like; light traps, malaise trap, barrier trap, specialised blow fly trap, hand collecting and pit traps.
We can prepare and preserved specimens for displays at schools, TAFE and where required for scientific purposes.
A new service that has just commenced is taking the local community out in the bush, collecting and photographing of the specimens. The photographs are then up loaded to the Living Atlas. This service incorporates Citizen Science and Changeology to bring councils, community groups, businesses and schools together to learn how important insects are in biodiversity, health of our habitats (both natural and built) they are important even in our own backyards.
The service is called Bugs In the Bush (BITB).
This is a simple way of increasing our scientific knowledge while informing the public and giving them a sense of ownership of their local reserves and parks.
Showing the next generation how important bugs are in their back yard.
