She has also written the memoirs Cry of the Kalahari, The Eye of the Elephant, and Secrets of the Savanna, with her then-husband, Mark, about their time studying animals in Africa. Biography Owens grew up in Thomasville, in south Georgia in the 1950s. She and her then-husband, Mark Owens, were students in biology at the University of Georgia. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in zoology from the University of Georgia and a Ph.D. in Animal Behavior from the University of California, Davis.The couple moved to Africa in 1974, traveling before making camp in the Kalahari Desert, Botswana. Cry of the Kalahari was written about the couple's experience. After they campaigned against the local cattle industry, Botswana government officials expelled them from the country. The Owenses then settled in the North Luangwa National Park, Zambia, and later in Mpika in the early 1990s. Mark Owens has been accused of operating a "shoot to kill" policy against poachers.

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.
