The first week of the September school holidays saw with me driving to the beautiful Cape Otways to film Koalas being captured, health assessed and released back into their habitat. It is jobs like these that make me feel lucky to be doing what I do. To be working in a beautiful spot, meeting really cool people (who climb trees for a living) and documenting a project that I wouldn’t otherwise know about, really makes freelance filmmaking all worth it.
I filmed and edited these two films for DELWP in September, 2015. To read and learn more about what DELWP are doing with the koalas, read here.
“Victorian Government vets and wildlife officers have returned to Cape Otway to carry out welfare actions to manage and protect the local koala population.”
