The tasmanian devil is a fox like marsupial that only lives in the wilds of Tasmania, Australia. You probably know them as the character Taz in the Looney Tunes cartoons.
Since the mid-1990s, a contagious cancer has swept through the tasmanian devil population. It is predicted that within the next five years the entire population will be infected thus leading them to extinction.
Warner Bros. will be doing it’s part to help save the tasmanian devil. They will be putting out a collection of DVD feature the famed Looney Tunes cartoons. One dollar from the sale of each DVD will go towards a government fund set up to save the tasmanian devil. The DVDs will be sold in Australia.
Currently, the only other tasmanian devils outside of Australia live in zoos. Preservation will focus on relocation the marsupial to island sanctuaries that have not seen the spread of cancer.
