“May this year bring with it all the success and fulfilment your heart desires.”
Thank you for supporting the Devil Island Project by choosing to request donations in lieu of gifts for your birthday.
With your help we can raise the funds needed to build free range enclosures (FRE's) on large areas of land that we call Devil Islands and the Great Devil Walls of Tasmania. This will ensure that we have a secure wild breeding population of healthy devils in their home State of Tasmania, free of the Devil Facial Tumour Disease that threatens the future of this beautiful iconic Australian marsupial.
In just minutes you can build and customise your page, then start sharing the link with your friends, family and colleagues and ask them to make a donation to your page. Every donation is then recorded on your fundraising page along with a birthday message from your donors.
On behalf of the Devil Island Project have a wonderful Birthday and thank you for helping us save the Tasmanian devil by building them a future.
Devil Island Project - Saving the Tasmanian Devil
Devil Island Project is committed to saving the endangered Tasmanian Devil by building free-range enclosures on large areas of land that are called "Devil Islands" and our two new schemes "The Great Devil Walls of Tasmania" (GDWOT).
Devil Islands are large double fenced facilities that quarantine the Devils in their natural surroundings of their home State of Tasmania as an almost self-sustaining population and have kept them free and safe from the Devil Facial Tumour Disease (DFTD) cancer which has rapidly wiped out 90% of their species over large areas throughout Tasmania.
Healthy Tasmanian Devils can now roam wild in our Devil Islands with optimum welfare conditions and safe and secure isolated areas for breeding which will then increase their chances for survival and reestablishing themselves in the future.
Tha majority of Tasmanian Devils selected for the initial release of Devils onto Maria Island were taken from the Devil Island enclosures. The success of this program is really proof of the valoue of the free range enclosure concept
The Devil Island Project Group is now working to raise the necessary funds to build a 24km landscape fence accross the north western tip of Tasmania in order to protect up to 1000 disease free Devils in an area that is still free from the disease.
