Bookend Trust [link here]
Bookend is a multi award-winning not-for-profit education initiative that seeks to inspire students and their communities with the positive environmental careers they can build making the world a better place. Bookend is funded through the donation of time, energy and resources by private individuals concerned about building a positive and co-operative environmental future for our students and community. ECOtas is proud to support Bookend through donation of scientific expertise, administrative support, donation of digital images and financial contributions from profits.
BirdLife Tasmania [link here]
Mark Wapstra is a member of BirdLife Tasmania, supporting the pragmatic program of conservation management of the organisation through membership, buying raffle tickets and occasionally writing an article for their annual journal the Tasmanian Bird Report. Their web site is well worth a visit, especially to view their regular newsletter of Tasmanian-based bird news, Yellow Throat.
Tasmanian Field Naturalists Club Inc. [link here]
Mark Wapstra (and family) are members of one of the longest running field naturalists club in Australia. Mark edits the Club’s annual journal The Tasmanian Naturalist and is a regular contributor. Visit their web site to view reports on monthly excursions and speakers, the regular Bulletin, and every issue/article of The Tasmanian Naturalist since its start in 1907.
Plants of Tasmania Nursery [link here]
Arguably Tasmania’s foremost native plant nursery, now run by John Gibson, and located in picturesque Ridgeway on the slopes of Mt Wellington, the nursery is worth a visit just to see their display gardens but I challenge anyone to walk away without buying a local Tasmanian native!
