The Tasmanian devil is the world's largest surviving marsupial carnivore and is now only found in the wild on the Australian island State of Tasmania. Once found on the mainland, it is estimated to have died out there between 400-600 years ago.
Regarded as common a little over a decade ago, the species has suffered a major decline over the last 10 years and is now listed as Endangered at a State and National level.
An unusual infectious cancer known as Devil Facial Tumour Disease (DFTD) is the major reason for the species decline.
The Save the Tasmanian Devil Program, a joint initiative of the Tasmanian and Commonwealth Governments was established in 2003 to respond to the disease threat.
