Tasmanian Devils Get a New Home

Facial Tumor Disease, which is contagious in Tasmanian Devils, is deadly. If affected, it can die, and spread the disease. In order to protect he endangered Tasmanian devil, the unaffected ones will be sent to a nature preserve far away from the infected ones. By sending the healthy ones away from the island, they are isolating the disease to a limited amount of Tasmanian Devils. Soon, the Tasmanian Devil will become populated again.
