The Tasmanian Devil

I recently had the privilege of visiting Tasmania. It’s a beautiful island off the coast of Australia. One of the reasons for my visit was to catch a glimpse of a Tasmanian Devil, a marsupial that is on the brink of extinction because of a rare, contagious cancer. I was able to see a few devils at the Devils at Cradle Sanctuary and also at the home of a foster mother who is raising two joeys before their release to either a sanctuary or a disease-free island where a small population remains. If you’d like to learn more about the Tasmanian Devil and the work being done to keep them with us, here’s a link: ¬†http:///www.devilsatcradle.com
