The report provides an overview of the Program's work during 2015 including program management, wild devil recovery, the Forestier and Narawntapu translocations, Insurance populations, Research and collaboration and Program partnerships.

The report also looks to the future and outlines key activities for the Program during 2016 and beyond – including managing devil populations on Maria Island; the emergence of DFT2 and trialling soft release pens to see if it improves the survival of devils post-release.

The Annual Program Report is produced by the Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment (DPIPWE). The report also features contributions from the wide range of organisations that are part of, or work closely with, the STDP.
