Faunaverseis creating Australian wildlife poetry books, videos & educational programs
Faunaverse is Alexander and Jane Dudley.
Alex and Jane believe passionately in the importance of connecting kids (and adults) to nature for the future health and well-being of people and the environment, and know that Alex's poetry and photographs are a powerful medium to communicate facts about our unique wildlife, hopefully inspiring an interest and connection to the Australian environment.
In 2016 Alex and Jane published Faunaverse-Australian wildlife in poetry, the first of hopefully many books, featuring 23 poems accompanied by Alex's extraordinarily beautiful photographs.
The book has been so well received that it has been developed into a School Safari's program.
Alex, Jane and Faunaverse now tour primary schools to open the eyes and wonder of children to Australia's incredible wildlife. Alex and Jane hope to create curriculum based environmental education teacher resources as it has become apparent through interaction with staff and children through the School Safari program that education about Australian ecology is lacking within the school system, which is concerning to both Alex and Jane.
Faunaverse Wildlife in poetry Tasmania is the second book in the series published in September 2018. Alex and Jane hope to tour Tasmanian primary school's with a Tassie themed curriculum based Faunaverse School's Safari's tour.
Faunaverse is proudly self-published and printed in Australia. We aim to try and remain a self-publishing entity to ensure that we can continue to print our books in Australia on FSC paper. Most books are now printed in China, and this completely goes against our environmental ethics.
We hope through book sales and author tours, to be able to also self-fund School Safari programs and the creation of teacher resources, as well as continue to self-publish our Faunaverse series, however we've decided to create this Patreon account in the hope that some of our current and future Faunaverse fans may be inspired to invest in the creation of future books, resources and primary school tours.
