Australia reintroduces Tasmanian devils to wild
Tasmanian devils have been reintroduced into the wild in Australia 3,000 years after they became extinct on the mainland.
Conservation groups released 26 of the marsupials into a large sanctuary in Barrington Tops, north of Sydney.
Tim Faulkner, president of Aussie Ark, said the “incredible” releases came after a 16-year breeding project.
Tasmanian devils typically prey on native animals or scavenge carcasses but are not dangerous to humans or livestock, according to experts.
