More than just an old tree
The Barking Owl rely heavily on hollows in trees for nesting. Suitable nesting hollows can take hundreds of years to form.
With the reduction of hollows around Australia, barking owl habitat is decreasing while nest hollow competition is increasing.
To see this species in the wild, we suggest Paluma Range National Park, Queensland.
