For many years, amateurs and professionals have shared the time-consuming task of determining invertebrate status and distribution. This paper identifies some of the strengths and weaknesses of current community-based invertebrate survey and monitoring programs, and suggests how professional scientists could assist amateur monitors with survey design, field monitoring methods and identification keys. By using a collaborative approach linking amateurs and professionals, it is proposed that a series of community-based regional invertebrate monitoring events could engage the interest and concern of increasing numbers of Australians, increase the coverage and density of invertebrate data collections and assist invertebrate conservation and management.
