Tasmanian Devils at Devil Ark, Barrington Tops, NSW

The Australian Reptile Park in Somersby, NSW has teamed up with leading conservation organisations to develop Devil Ark which is being build in the Barrington Tops of NSW and will provide a major component of a coordinated Australia-wide Tasmanian devil breeding program. From an initial founding group of 48 Tasmanian devils scheduled to arrive at the facility in November, a captive bred population of 360 devils is anticipated by 2016. A second stage of the development will see the population increased to 900 Tasmanian devils by 2020.
