At Huon Valley Caravan Park we are proud to be part of the long-term effort to save our Tasmanian Devils from the deadly facial tumor disease.
We have 4 devils in our care. They are part of the extensive plan to make sure this iconic creature survives into the future.
The Save the Tassie Devil Program has a number of key objectives, including to:
- Maintain a Tasmanian devil population in the wild through managing the impact of devil facial tumor disease and minimising the impact of other threats.
- Maintain the current genetic diversity of the Tasmanian devil.
- Establish a sustainable disease-free insurance population for possible future release into the wild.
- Manage the ecological impacts of a reduced Tasmanian devil population over its natural range.
