Tasmanian Devil, Sarcophilus Harissi

The Tasmanian Devil is currently suffering a population crash due to a contageous cancer. Approximately 80% of all devils have died with no cure or test available. Efforts are underway to study the disease and to protect relocated populations but the future looks bleak with most experts predicting extinction in the wild within 10-20 years.
