Are the devils coming back?

We've just received a reliable report of two healthy Tasmanian Devils in the Liffey Valley, including one juvenile.

Since 1996, facial tumour disease has wiped out over 80% of Tasmania's devil population and sightings at Liffey are rare.

But there are recent reports that wild devils are developing natural resistance to the disease. It's early days yet, but here's hoping that a viable population will return to our Liffey reserves.

We're doing all we can to make sure habitat for devils at Liffey is protected and restored.
