Eucalypt Australia is a grant-making Charitable Trust that focuses on eucalypts, an Australian icon and a significant aspect of Australia’s natural environment and biodiversity. We envisage a public inspired by and appreciative of eucalypts.

Underneath the Gum Trees

As part of its strategic educational vision, Eucalypt Australia funded the Among the Gum Trees unit developed by Primary Connections.  Primary Connections is an innovative program developed by the Australian Academy of Science with the objective of linking the teaching of science with the teaching of literacy in primary schools.

This video Underneath the Gum Trees supplements the Among the Gum Trees unit and addresses science understanding through the context of the interdependent relationship of eucalypt trees and animals.

More information on Among the Gum Trees and Primary Connections can be found here.

Dean Nicolle and iNaturalist

The iNaturalist project involves uploading all of Dean’s high-quality photographs and their accompanying specimen/record notes of eucalypts onto the online biodiversity-sharing platform iNaturalist.

This will result in over 4,000 of Dean’s vouchered observations of eucalypts being available as open data on iNaturalist.
