The sanctuary conducts a number of in-situ conservation programs within the Cradle Mountain area and by combining resources with the State Government, U-TAS, Parks and Wildlife Service, Tasmanian Wildlife Parks, local operators and the community we aim to make a significant contribution to the conservation of these species.
CBP - Our Captive Breeding Program underpins the Conservation Programs and is vital to ensure genetic viability within our captive display and insurance populations with the intention of sustainable genetic breeding for the purpose of reintroduction.
FMP - Our Field Monitoring Program (FMP) collects data on all these species within the wilderness of Cradle Mountain through the use of remote cameras, road kill surveys, spotlight surveys and liaising with the local community and visitors to the sanctuary.
ORP - Our Orphan Rehabilitation Program (ORP) receives a patient or two around spring time every year and is a role we cherish. There is nothing quite like being a mother to a joey devil and seeing them develop to maturity either within captivity or reintroduced back into the wild
