A short film (37 mins) produced by Wooragee Landcare Group
Entertaining and educational, this short docudrama features the ‘endangered’ Barking Owls of North East Victoria.
In this film we meet Betty, a Barking Owl, wildlife ecologist Dr Natasha Schedvin and local residents and children of the Chiltern-Mt Pilot National Park area near Beechworth and Chiltern.

Join them and discover more about the fascinating Barkers.
Betty shares with us some of the significant events of her life’s story – finding a mate, raising a family – the dangers that are always lurking in the bush.
Betty and her partner Todd survive the disastrous wildfire of 2003 but Betty’s life is changed forever.
What lessons can we learn about managing the land for future generations of Barkers?
Filmed on location in the Chiltern-Mt Pilot National Park and surrounding area, this short local film is based on the research of PhD student Natasha Schedvin and the owls she came to know and love.
It is intended to increase awareness and understanding of a little known or understood species and its habitat requirements in order to help secure its survival as a species.
The film has been developed to appeal to a wide range of audiences including landholders, land managers and students: primary, secondary or tertiary. It would also be useful for presentations to a wide variety of community groups eg Probus, U3A. It could be used to stimulate discussion on a wide variety of biodiversity related topics.
A 4 page information sheet is also available to accompany the DVD.
