Tassie Devil could become extinct

tassiedAs our Tasmanian Synod began we heard the news that no Tasmanian ever wants to hear: ‘Tassie Devil on endangered species list’

Environment Minister Peter Garrett said the species was under continued threat due to the Devil Facial Tumour Disease: ‘This disease has led to the decline of about 70 per cent of the Tasmanian devil population since the disease was first reported in 1996.’

The good news is that the federal government is giving $10 million over five years to the Save the Tasmanian Devil program.

  1. Hi Bishop John,

    I’m proud that Tassie has our very own “blogging bishop”, really enjoy reading your blog.

    Thanks for blogging so regularly and keeping me “up to date”

    In Christ,


  2. Appreciate your encouraging word, Amy. Just returned from BCA’s 90th Birthday Dinner hosted by Howrah Parish – Birthday cake and all! BCA’s forerunner sent a missioner to work among the Hobart wharfies in 1846. Stay close to Jesus, John
