Queensland's Citizen Science Hub

Interested to participate in a first of its’ kind exciting Australia wide Citizen Science project? Pesticide Detectives is an extensive project investigating the occurrence and concentrations of pesticides in Australian waterways. It is funded by the Department of Industry, Innovation and Business and undertaken by the Aquatic Environmental Stress Research Group (AQUEST) based at RMIT University. Citizen Scientists in collaboration with AQUEST scientists will collect sediments from waterways across Australia to advance our understanding of pesticide contamination in Australia’s waterways. Results from the study will be shared with you and will be available on our webpage. Learn more about pesticides in your waterway by participating in this study.
