The species is on the red list of the United Nation as an endangered animal due to the decrease of the species over the last years. After they have disappeared from mainland Australia, on the lands of Tasmania, only about 25,000 of them are in the wild. And as per the estimation of the experts out of the remaining about 90% of them have been ost due to cancer among them called Devil Facial Tumor Disease (DFTD).

Anyhow recently good news about them was heard, about 26 adult devils had been released in 2020 to the wildlife sanctuary, Aussie Ark’s Barrington which is in New South Wales. Among the devils, there had been 7 females that could reproduce. And after a few months, it was said that 7 little devils had been born. After about 3000 years they are the first to be born in mainland Australia.

The devils were released as an organized effort in preserving the species by Aussie Ark,  Re: wild, and WildArk. They have been working together on the project. The birth of the little ones has given hope that the species would be saved and the population would increase.

The president of Aussie Ark, Tim Faulker had commented saying that they’ve been working hard for more than 10 years to bring the species back to the mainland with a hope that the population would be maintained. And after the devils are brought things are on their hands. And that they’ve been watching them from far until it was time to confirm the birth of the little devils.
