Meet the enchanting quolls of QUOLL FARM this February on ABC TV

Advertisement

This is the true story of a family of charismatic quolls that live on an abandoned farm in a hidden corner of Tasmania, and one man’s extraordinary devotion to save them.

In Tasmania lives a rare and wonderful marsupial, the Eastern Quoll. Already extinct on the Australian mainland, their numbers are declining in Tasmania, their last refuge. Invasive predators, a changing climate and human encroachment threaten their numbers. Soon these animals could be lost forever. But could humans also help them survive?

Simon Plowright, a naturalist, and filmmaker spends a year on an abandoned farm in a hidden valley looking into their world and uncovering their secrets. Living alone in the wilderness may seem like an extraordinary step, but Simon knows this is a unique opportunity to study this enigmatic and often misunderstood marsupial, and more importantly, to see if there is a way, he can help them survive. Is it just possible that given a chance they would choose to live alongside us?

Production Funding from the ABC, Smithsonian Channel, ZDF/Arte and NHK. Filmed in association the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra.
