Pesticide Detectives

The Pesticide Detectives: national assessment of pesticides in waters

The Pesticide Detectives is an extensive national Citizen Science project investigating the occurrence and concentrations of pesticides used in homes and gardens as well as agricultural and urban settings in Australia’s waterways.


Funded by the Department of Industry, Innovation and Business, Pesticide Detectives is a collaborative project combining the scientific expertise of RMIT University’s Aquatic Environmental Stress Research Group (AQUEST) scientists and Citizen Science volunteers in the collection of sediment samples from waterways across Australia.
