No Tassie devil trip this year

I’m disappointed that the Tasmanian Devil Scientific Expedition in March is not going ahead this year. The chief scientist, Associate Professor Menna Jones, has won a Fulbright scholarship to pursue studies in the US. Good on her – she is smart and capable.

The devil facial tumour disease’s progress is slowing down and it still has not reached the west coast of Tassie – good news. Research is still needed, so the trip has been postponed until 2018.
