The true story of a family of quolls living on an abandoned farm in Tasmania and one man’s extraordinary devotion to save them.
In a distant corner of a far-away land lives a remarkable animal, the Eastern Quoll; a rare and wonderful marsupial. Long extinct on the Australian mainland, their numbers are declining on the island state of Tasmania, their last refuge. Invasive predators, a changing climate and human encroachment threaten their numbers. Soon these animals could be lost for ever. But could humans also help them survive?
Simon Plowright, a naturalist and film-maker, spends a year on an abandoned farm in a hidden valley looking into their world and uncovering their secrets.
This is a story about endangered animals and one man’s extraordinary devotion to save them…..and sometimes, against all the odds, magic happens.
