New Baby Tasmanian Devils
20 May 2011
We are excited to announce the recent birth of Tasmanian Devil joeys right here at Australia Zoo!
Our two resident mums, Indie and Tasma, gave birth about a week apart, however we haven't been able to confirm how many joeys we have yet, as they will remain in the pouch for about three more months.
This announcement comes as Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors prepares to celebrate ‘Black and White Day' on Sunday 22 May, raising funds and awareness for Tasmanian devil conservation.
With predictions the critically endangered species will be extinct within 10 to 15 years due to consequences from the Devil Facial Tumour Disease (DFTD), every birth is a positive for the species.
