What are waterbugs?

Waterbugs are small invertebrates that live in freshwater. These can include the water-based stages of many insects like dragonflies, damselflies, mayflies and caddisflies. Each type of waterbug has a certain sensitivity to pollution or water quality changes in their waterway. So the type and number of bugs found in a waterway can tell you how healthy it is.

What is the National Waterbug Blitz?

The National Waterbug Blitz is Australia’s first nationwide, citizen science, waterway monitoring event. In spring each year, Australians are encouraged to discover how healthy their local waterways and wetlands are, simply by exploring and identifying what waterbugs live in them. By using simple equipment and a phone app or key you can identify them
