After 8 months of hiding, little joey Becky has finally emerged from mum’s pouch!
National Threatened Species Day
National Threatened Species Day is held on 7th communities to help conserve Australia’s unique native fauna and flora.
At Halls Gap Zoo we are poised ready to take delivery of numerous Tasmanian Devils as part of the Tasmanian Devil Insurance Population Project – the first group set to arrive Sept 24. The majority of Devils born in mainland zoos are intensively managed so they are coming here to learn how to “become Devils” with minimum human contact and managed in such a way they will learn natural Devil behaviours in large enclosures before being transported to the disease-free islands and protected peninsulas of Tasmania.
