Tasmanian devils, the world’s largest living carnivorous marsupials, are endangered but a large network of people are working hard to save them. Only ten years ago devils were considered common and abundant. But sadly, the Tasmanian Devil Facial Tumor Disease, in a very short period of time, wiped out entire populations of devils throughout Tasmania. Fewer than 25,000 Tasmanian devils remain in the wild today, down from an estimated 150,000 individuals in the 1990s. While scientists work on a vaccine the animal's population has been increased by captive breeding and release programs. Rescue groups rehabilitate orphaned and injured animals until they are strong enough to return to the wild and education programs have increased Australian's understanding of these endangered species. Suzi Eszterhas takes us behind the scenes in two sanctuaries to see the conservationists at work. Fortunately, a 2020 study of the cancer’s genomics, published in the journal Science, offers a rare bright spot: The disease’s infection rate among wild devils has declined greatly since it first emerged, suggesting that Tasmanian devils could coexist with the disease. In addition, this year a team of scientists has discovered that drugs used to lower cholesterol in humans could help treat Tasmanian devils with deadly facial tumours.
