Australia has over 1,500 species of native bees in an amazing variety of colours. Visit the Aussie Bee website to learn about the native bees in your garden such as the stingless honeybees, teddy bear bees and blue banded bees. Native bee information booklets, a field guide and a free online magazine are also available at this site. These unique resources are produced by the Australian Native Bee Research Centre.
Birds Australia began life as the Royal Australasian Ornithologists Union (RAOU) in 1901. We thought that title was a bit of a mouthful, so now we call ourselves Birds Australia.
BA is dedicated to the conservation, study and enjoyment of Australia's native birds and their habitats.

Field Naturalists Club of Tasmania
Sometimes known as the Tas Field-Nats, we are comprised of both amateurs and professionals who share a common interest in the natural world. Experts in a particular topic not only pass on their knowledge to others, but find themselves learning about related aspects of their particular interest. The only requirement of members is an active interest in the natural world. The club was formed in 1904, and we are associated with other Field Naturalist Clubs throughout Tasmania and beyond.
