DEVILS TO GET A FRESH START - A RACE AGAINST EXTINCTION?

By

Are you in need of a fresh start?  Say in Gananoque, Kingston and the 1000 Islands region?

Well I just read that a fresh start is available for devils today . . .  Tasmanian Devils!!

I am embarrassed to say I once thought the Tasmanian Devil only existed on The Bugs Bunny Show!

When my cousin moved to Tasmania it was quite a shock to learn my education was lacking :)

So today I read in this article that "Tasmania is the only place where the devil is found in the wild and their numbers have plunged by 91 per cent",  I was quite saddened.   They are now in a "race against extinction"!

It is said "Their plight is so dire authorities have started breeding a so-called "insurance population" in captivity to ensure they do not die out."

. . . Fourteen of the devils are being released today on Maria Island, a nature sanctuary off Australia's east coast.  It is a rugged national park that can only be reached by boat or plane and is vehicle and shop-free, has never before been a devil habitat.

These little guys are being given a fresh start and hopefully, they willl go forth and multiply!

If you are interested in re-locating to the Kingston, Gananoque, 1000 Islands region, I am more than happy to help you with your fresh start!  Give me, Susan Emo, a call and allow me to help you find the perfect place.

I wonder if the real Tasmanian Devils can move so quickly that they create little whirlwinds in their wake.

Susan,

It's very sad that they are near extinction. I hope this initiative to save them works out well and they do well on Maria Island. Thank you for posting about this....off now to read the article.

Susan, I always said if I ever got brave enough, I would get a tattoo of the Tasmanian devil.  I'm alarmed to hear they are 91% extinct.
