Trust For Nature

Our Films

Our 40 year anniversary film

Below is a short film about the history of Trust for Nature.  Established in 1972, the Trust is now 40 and this film reflects on the highlights of those years.

Rare footage of a Sugar Glider using its tail

Trust for Nature made a short film to launch its state-wide 1000th conservation covenant campaign and captured rare footage of a Sugar Glider carrying nest material with its tail. Trust for Nature staff placed 16 survey cameras at various locations across one of its conservation covenanted properties in Gembrook, near Melbourne.

Watch the Glider here.

A wildlife film with a twist

Trust for Nature’s film has the appearance of eight special native mammals and two birds - Long-nosed Bandicoot, Black Wallaby (Swamp Wallaby), Mountain Brushtail Possum (Southern Bobuck), Superb Lyrebird, Bush Rat, Eastern Whipbird, Common Wombat, Agile Antechinus, Sugar Glider and John Clarke!

A Day in Coastal Scrubland

The latest from our motion-activated cameras.

Trust for Nature’s very own Ben Cullen, our Regional Manager in the Port Phillip and Westernport region, has captured some very special footage in coastal Moonah Woodland. Watch a Swamp wallaby, Swamp rat, Long-nosed Bandicoot and Superb Fairy wrens at home in coastal scrubland. The Long-nosed Bandicoot is a particular treat, as it is extremely rare in this part of the State and is mostly active during the night, when it forages for insects and fungi using its lovely long nose.

Wildlife in Motion Footage from Conservation Covenants

Trust for Nature's Ben Cullen and Chris Lindorff have been busy filming!

Recently they have both been using motion-activated infrared cameras on conservation covenants and the Trust's own properties and have captured some amazing footage. The Southern Brown Bandicoot makes a return to the screen, we see an echidna looking for lunch and the Brush-tailed Phascogale, amongst others - along with some feral species that share their habitats!

Southern Brown Bandicoot

Trust for Nature's Ben Cullen recently caught the Southern Brown Bandicoot browsing in Bunyip - along with some feral species that share its habitat!
