The Bookend Trust is the multi-award winning educational arm of the Pennicott Foundation. The Foundation was established by ecotourism pioneer Robert Pennicott, and Bookend projects are a Tasmanian initiative built under guidance from the late author Bryce Courtenay ('The Power of One').

Income generated from our work is fed directly back into our charitable educational programs, which are interwoven combinations of live and interactive online expeditions, school and teacher support tools, exhibitions, books and multimedia. Our recent projects have provided opportunities for families to access education to escape the trap of people trafficking in Thailand, have helped students install alternative power supplies for medical equipment in remote Fiji (providing both medical benefits and a means of transitioning Fijian communities away from fossil fuels to renewable energy systems), have involved regional students undertaking endangered animal surveys across Australia, and have even flown students to Antarctica in exciting, inspiring career-development programs.
