Our friends at Devil Ark are working on a project making a real difference to save the endangered Tasmanian Devil.
Our very own Topsy and Bub at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo have come from this special project and serve as ambassadors for the species.
The Tasmanian devils biggest threat is Devil Facial Tumour Disease (DFTD). Since the first cases were spotted in the mid-1990s, the wild devil population has been decimated by this fatal cancer, which is spread through biting and scratching. More than 95% of the population in certain areas has been wiped out by DFTD and the Tasmanian devil is facing the very real threat of extinction in the wild.
