Do you want to see more butterflies, birds and bees in parks and gardens around Brisbane?

Join others who are already bringing a bit of bush into their urban gardens; providing water, food and shelter for our native wildlife.

Blue-banded Bee Mascot

Our Pollinator Link mascot, the Blue-banded Bee Amegilla cingulatatypically flies up to 300 metres to forage for food. Australia has over 2,000 species of native bees pollinating everything from the iconic Queensland Nut Tree (Macadamia) to tomatoes in our vegetable patch.

The aim of the Pollinator Link project is to support important species like Blue-banded Bees with gardens providing water, food and shelter every 150 metres.

Stable Swamp Creek Pollinator Link

30,000 Brisbane Pollinator Link gardens will create virtual wildlife corridors connecting all the small parcels of remnant bushland and bringing birds, butterflies and bees to add colour, sound and movement in our urban habitat.

If you already have a birdbath, or other water for wildlife, check the Certification guidelines and register your garden to help build awareness and support to reach the target 30,000 gardens.
