In this section you are invited
to write to our experts and researchers and ask them questions. These
questions, and the responses, will form a database of Frequently Asked
Questions that will help build up our body of knowledge.
Here is a selection of questions
that have been asked already about the Tasmanian Devil and the answers
provided by our researchers
What does DFTD stand
DFTD stands for Devil
Facial Tumour Disease and is a contagious cancer that caused the
Tasmanian Devil to be listed as an endangered species, and without
our intervention, may cause the extinction of the Devil. Check out
other pages on our site for more information
the importance of saving this species - exactly what is being done
to lower other impacts on tassie devils other than DFTD. For example
- wildlife corridors, habitat protection, protecting denning sites?
I'm concerned that a lot of effort and emphasis is on the fatal
disease - yet other things are fatal too and will impact on the
remaining populations in the wild.
working in the Save the Tasmanian Devil program have considered these
issues and have details on their website
