If I told you that Tasmanian Devil was the reason why I chose Tasmania as my destination for English language learning, would it sound ridiculous? Actually, the devil wasn’t the reason but I wanted to see them because I have been wondering how the real one looked like comparing with the one by Looney Tunes.
When I went hiking in Tasmania, I did hope that I would see them along walking trails but I didn’t see them. So before going back to Thailand, my host family took my friends and me to visit a zoo where I could look at the devils for the first time.
During my stay in Tasmania, there was contagious ‘Devil Facial Tumour Disease‘ that threatened this animal. It was a concerned issue because the relevant authority didn’t know how to cure the disease so they were quite afraid of extinction. This disease would prevent the devils from eating so they would die from starvation.
I remembered that there were many news related to this issue, and the Looney Tunes’ Taz also launched a project to donate to the Save the Tasmanian Devil Appeal.
We can follow the progress of the Save the Devil program via their FaceBook page.
