We have an opportunity to save Tasmanian devils from extinction
Your gift will give future hope to the Tasmanian devil population
With less than 10% of Tasmanian devils living in Australia as of May 2018, every single Tasmanian devil joey is critical to saving the species. Unfortunately the stats are not on the Tasmanian devils side, with over 90% of the population disappearing from the wild since Devil Facial Tumour Disease was discovered in 1996.
Australia has lost 30 mammal species and 29 bird species alone to extinction. A recent publication predicts another 17 species are likely to become extinct in the next 20 years. That’s nearly 1 extinction every year!
Things must change.
Since opening in 2011 with only 44 founder animals, devil ark is a story of success currently holding over 180 Tasmanian devils in save, wild sanctuaries far from the disease ravaged Tasmanian landscape.
We urgently need to raise $20,000 by June 30 to help support the newest generation of devils at Devil Ark – will you help us?
Your gift of $20, $30 or $100 will help us fully equip all of our expectant mothers with the necessary items to get through winter at the Ark.
Devil Ark is in for a long, cold winter and your help will assist us in providing every yard with expectant mothers with more nest boxes with nesting material, additional food to provide the mothers extra nutritional supplements as well as monitoring equipment so we can keep an eye on each mother and joeys progress over this crucial period.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
― Margaret Mead
It’s not often we get the chance to save an entire species from extinction. We have that chance today, with a small window of opportunity, we need to move fast.
Please help us to continue to grow a healthy, safe population of Tasmanian devils before they are lost forever. We urgently need to raise $20,000 by June 30th and we thank you for your generosity. We know we can make it with your help.DONATE NOW
