Threats. Disease is the main threat to Tasmanian Devils. Devil Facial Tumor Disease, also known as DFTD is the main threat. Another threat is that people are destroying land that the devils normally live in. The three options of survival if your land is being destroyed is to 1) move 2) adapt 3) die. This is a very dangerous situation for the Tasmanian devils as they cannot move and cannot adapt fast enough. cdn.thinglink.me
Animal status. The Tasmanian Devil is officially listed as endangered. We don't know how many are left, but we do know that 95% of the affected populations are dead. Some ideas to help are. Breed in captivity and release healthy Devils to the wild. Move healthy Devils that have been bred in captivity to other land, to be kept safe as a back up resource. www.kane.com.au
