In 2018 organise a Black & White Fundraising Day – our ambitious goal of a vaccine is in sight but we need your help!

With a goal to raise over $25,000 in 2018 the Save the Tasmanian Devil Appeal’s annual fundraiser “Black and White Day” promises to help our Tassie devil even more.

We are again calling on schools, businesses, community groups and work places to raise funds for the Tasmanian devils' fight against Devil Facial Tumour Disease (DFTD) and to help secure a future in the wild for the Tassie devil.

There is much to be celebrated - funds raised through Black and White Day in previous years supported vaccine research, genetic testing and disease monitoring!

But ongoing funding is vital! Our ambitious goal of a vaccine is in sight but to do this we need your support!

In 2017 some Balcombe Grammar Year 5 boys organised a colouring in competition, Year 2 students at Maitland Lutheran School sold stress balls at lunch time, East Launceston Primary School students sold cupcakes and other schools like Richmond Primary School organised a plain clothes day to help us raise funds for the devils. There are many ways to help us, we love to hear from individuals and groups at schools and workplaces who are trying new fundraising ideas!

It's so easy to take part, you can email us for details at  or call us on 03 6324 3423. To find out more information, download the 2018 Black & White Fundraising Day flyer .

Teachers – you might like to incorporate the day into the science curriculum – the Australian Curriculum lesson website provides some ideas about endangered and threatened species.

Did you know the Tasmanian devil became Tasmania’s first animal emblem in 2015?

The Teacher’s Kit on the Save the Tasmanian Devil Program website is a fantastic resource as is the Tasmanian Devil Information for Kids provided by the Wildlife Management team at DPIPWE.
