Save The Tasmanian Devil

The Program

This Page/Phil Wise Oct 2009.jpgDevil Facial Tumour Disease (DFTD) is a rare infectious cancer that is spreading through wild Tasmanian devil populations. The Tasmanian devil has been listed as Endangered by theĀ Federal and State governments, as well as theĀ Red List of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN). The Tasmanian devil is now wholly protected. Find out more…

The Save the Tasmanian Devil Program (STDP) was established in 2003 following concern for the decline of the Tasmanian devil due to DFTD. The core activity of the Save the Tasmanian Devil Program is funded by the Australian and Tasmanian Governments and is overseen by aSteering Committee. The Program is co-ordinated by the Tasmanian Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment (DPIPWE).

The program is now in its third, five year plan or stage. Each stage of the STDP has had a distinct purpose and has led to significant developments that have allowed the conservation activities for the Tasmanian devil to advance.
