Biography Owens grew up in rural Georgia in the 1950s. She and her then-husband, Mark Owens, were students in biology at the University of Georgia.

The report featured the controversial killing of a poacher in Zambia, allegedly committed by Delia's stepson, Christopher Owens. Both are wanted in Zambia for questioning. The Owenses have denied the accusations. The family were also accused of having "archaic ideas about Africans", with one critic describing their views as "Nice continent. Pity about the Africans"Since completing her PhD in Biology she has published her studies of African wildlife behavioral ecology in professional journals, including Nature, the Journal of Mammalogy, Animal Behaviour, and the African Journal of Ecology.
