Bookend Trust - the Tasmanian Masked Owl

With the tools of his trade and his fantastic photographs, zoologist Mick Todd tells Ninna about the Tasmanian Masked Owl (Tyto novaehollandiae castanops), an endangered subspecies found only on the island. Bookend is a not-for-profit environmental education program, seeking to inspire upcoming students with the positive careers they can build making the world a better place. We achieve this through scholarships, documentaries, school visits, public presentations, on-ground field courses and the award-winning Expedition Class adventure learning program. Bookend is funded through the donation of time, energy and resources by businesses, professionals and private individuals concerned about building a positive and co-operative environmental future for our students and community. We started this work voluntarily as we feel privileged to have had the careers we've had, and we wish to pass this inspiration and opportunity to the next generation. Our ethos is that students (of all ages) should not underestimate the environmental problems that need to be addressed, but in doing so should see the opportunities that these challenges present. We therefore aim to provide opportunities, experiences and inspiration to students that they may not otherwise receive, and in turn to inspire them to "give back" to the community. In 2009, our Expedition Class program won the Australian Geographic Spirit of Adventure Award, and in 2010 Bookend won the Tasmanian Award for Environmental Excellence in Education.
