You can call me Mono - it's a pleasure to meet you. Here you'll find updates from a Master of Science (Zoology) student at Melbourne University, Australia.

  1.   14 Tasmanian Devils are about to be released onto Maria Island, just off the East coast of Tasmania, Australia. It is hoped they will be quarantined from Devil Facial Tumour Disease, the disease that is decimating the main Tasmanian population.
About 50 devils are hoped to be released to the island over the next two years, sourced from a healthy population of 500 in Tasmania and on the mainland. It is a huge stepping stone to developing a disease-free wild population in Tasmania.
