X:Polli-Nation (pronounced crosspollination) is a biodiversity citizen science project embedded in primary schools

The X-Polli:Nation project aims to get our communities buzzing. This National Geographic project shares (or ‘cross-pollinates’) approaches and tools between members of the public, scientists, technologists and educators in order to support pollinators, people and the practice of citizen science. Primary school children develop and maintain pollinator friendly habitats within their grounds, and learn how to identify and record pollinator species that visit these patches, thus contributing data on species level animal-plant interactions to science. This data is used to inform which flowers to plant the following season.
