Faunaverse is a place where science meets art. Storytelling has been a part of knowledge transfer over countless generations. For almost three decades, Alex Dudley has used poetry to communicate facts about the ecology and natural history of our unique Australian wildlife to people from all walks of life. His poems are entertaining, witty, memorable, and full of amazing information about the animals.
To date there are two books in the Faunaverse series:
Faunaverse Australian wildlife in poetry and Faunaverse Wildlife in poetry Tasmania. To get a sneak peek into each book, enjoy the video below.

Did you know Wombats do square poos? We recently found out why from a conversation Alex had with a wombat on a recent walk at Cradle Mountain National Park.
