The Tarkine devil project


Bonorong Wildlife Sanctuary together with Tarkine Trails are assisting the Tasmanian Government and the University of Tasmania in their fight to save Tasmanian devils from extinction. We currently operate 45 motion-sensitive cameras throughout the rainforests and coastlines of the Tarkine in order to monitor one of the last devil populations that are free from the devil facial tumor disease (DFTD). Via Tarkine Trails' infrastructure, walks and custom built experiences, we offer guests the opportunity to participate in the collection and viewing of the camera data and it's also those taking a trip with Tarkine Trails that help fund this vital research!

Earlier this year we were fortunate enough to have Amogh Avarsha, a photographer and film maker from India, visit the Tarkine to experience its rainforests and see the Tasmanian devil research first hand. Amogh's time with us in the Tarkine inspired him to put together this short video to showcase the Tarkine's beauty and highlight our endeavours to protect it and its species. A huge thank you to Amogh for his time and efforts with this great video. We encourage you to all take a look at it, share it with your friends and family, and maybe even consider a trip with Tarkine Trails to help support the Tarkine and Tasmania's iconic species, the Tasmanian devil.
