View a movie (1 minute 29 seconds) showing members of the Save the Tasmanian Devil program staff checking trap sites in the Central Highlands of Tasmania. The specially developed traps are checked on a daily basis and animals are carefully examined by veterinary officers for signs of the disease before being released back into the wild.
How you can help
There are four ways that you can help to save the Tasmanian devil.
- Report sightings of live diseased Tasmanian devils on 0497 DEVILS (0497 338 457)
In your report, include: details of the location and condition of the animal and your contact details (including telephone number). Members of the public should never touch Tasmanian devils under any circumstances. They are wild animals and they might be diseased, even if you can't see tumours.
