Tasmanian Devil Endangered Jake Warga
A deadly cancer threatens to wipe out Tasmania's most famous resident: the Tasmanian devil. Australia has the worst record of mammal extinctions in the world over the last 300 to 400 years. A quarter of all mammal extinctions worldwide since 1600 have occurred in Australia. Scientists say that without intervention, the rare Tasmanian Devil will disappear within 20 years.
