Print this Tasmanian Devil Poster out and display it in your classroom when studying endangered animals.
Where: In all habitats around Tasmania.
How many: Approximately 10 000–15 000 (As of 2008).
Why: Early farmers considered Tasmanian Devils a pest and hunted them. Growth in the dingo population meant increased competition for food and habitat. Smaller populations mean that Tasmanian Devils are more prone to disease such as the Devil Facial Tumour Disease.
