Habitat assessments using macroinvertebrates

Consider the biotic and abiotic elements of a freshwater aquatic ecosystem and collect data for habitat assessment. 

Use scientific sampling techniques to measure water quality parameters such as pH, turbidity and nutrient levels. Identify and classify macroinvertebrates using sensitivity scales to monitor biodiversity. Discuss the interactions of  organisms living in the wetland ecosystem and the effects of human activity.

Learn skills to participate in the 'National Waterbug Blitz' citizen science project at a wetland near you, where you’ll contribute real data to this Australian-wide waterway monitoring event.

Bookings are essential and fees apply.
