Posing for the calendar has become something of a rite of passage for students at the school, and it’s a cause that’s especially important for vets, said organiser Lucy Fuchter.

“As soon-to-be veterinarians and animals scientists, we are entering a workforce in which the suicide rate is four times that of the national average,” she said. “So it is a cause close to our hearts. The Black Dog Institute is an organisation dedicated to understanding, preventing and treating mental illness. With one in five people battling mental illness at some point in their lives, we hope that supporting the institute will assist their endeavours in helping so many.”

The school is the leading veterinary centre in Australia. Its has been producing a nude calendar for over ten years, generating almost $100,000 AUD ($68,000) for a variety of charities.

A dedicated website for the calendar says the fundraiser is intended to “support not only those in our industry, but all Australians who are struggling with their mental health”.
