Hi. My name is Jordan Dean. I've been creating videos as 'Ants Australia' since 2012. The channel is dedicated to the creation of informative, high-quality nature documentaries and ant keeping tutorials; which are written, narrated, filmed, and edited by me alone.

Ever since I was a kid, I've always had a deep interest in the natural world. I am especially interested in ants, as just like us, they're highly social beings. The way in which they communicate and cooperate with other members of their colony can prove to be an incredibly intricate and fascinating process to witness.

Unfortunately, many people simply neglect the beautiful intricacies of nature. I aim to help change this by focusing on, what I believe to be, the most overlooked and enchanting creatures on this planet, ants!

Ants make excellent bioindicators, the more ant species occupying an area, the more diversity of life will be present. By creating engaging, educational videos on ants, I hope to build others admiration for these little animals, encouraging the conservation and restoration of their natural habitats. Thus, helping return wildlife to its former glory!

  • Firstly, and most importantly, through generous Patreon pledges
  • Secondly, via Google Adsense on my YouTube videos. This is usually only a small amount per month and is quite unpredictable. 
  • And thirdly, to support and nurture the small, but dedicated ant keeping communities in Australia and abroad; I help run ‘Aus Ants’. A small business where we design and craft a range of world-leading products specifically designed and formulated for the successful keeping of ants. Despite our high reputability as a brand, Aus Ants rarely sees a profit. Unfortunately, ant keeping currently isn't as well known a hobby as I feel it deserves to be, and so, the market just isn't there yet.

I’ve always been reluctant to make demands of my audience. Very rarely do I ask anyone to like or share my content. Which begs the question, “why start a Patreon page?” Well, what changed my mind was the realisation that, without the support of donations, pursuing my dream of producing Ants Australia videos for a living, simply can’t be. The time and costs of production far outweigh the financial return. As a creator, who better to ask for support than my fans! 

So if you enjoy my content, and want to see more of it, more often, please consider chipping in. Any contribution vastly exceeds individual ad revenue on my videos, so even just a single dollar goes a long way. Plus, depending on your pledge, you’ll have access to exclusive patron rewards, such as behind the scenes sneak peeks on future projects, and early access to my videos.

In exchange for your pledge, I will pledge the following…

  • Continued focus on producing regular content without sacrificing quality.
  • I’m an incredibly frugal person - all proceeds will fund basic living expenses, and new equipment to further enhance future videos.
  • I will constantly experiment with new ideas and actively seek to improve upon my past videos.
  • My content will always remain freely available for anyone to watch on YouTube.



Some of my videos take longer to create than others, but generally, I post 1 new video per month. However, with your ongoing support, more regular videos are definitely a possibility!

Lastly, I’d like to thank you all for your overwhelming support throughout the years. Whether that be through your donations, inspiring words, or just silently sticking around. When I created Ants Australia all those years ago, never could I have imagined it would have come as far as it's come today. I feel incredibly privileged to have such an amazing, supportive fanbase. Again, thanks so much!
