Thanks to your support, game-changing new roadkill prevention technology is being trialled, particularly to prevent the deaths of Tasmanian Devils. Tassie Devils are endangered, their numbers plummeting from the horrific Devil Facial Tumour Disease. Before, an estimated 1,700 devils were being killed on roads each year, with any young in pouches or in dens secondary victims. Now, this new technology could see an 80% reduction in roadkill and a brighter future for this iconic Australian animal.
This project was funded through generous donations from FNPW supporters across Australia and beyond.
